Conversation workshops are held on Monday and Tuesday evenings, from 7:00 to 10:00 pm, as well as Wednesday afternoons from 13:00 to 15:00. In Charlesbourg, workshops are on Monday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 at Resto-Brasserie Le Grand Bourg. There are 2 ten-week sessions per year: one in the fall, and one in the winter. A special spring five-week session may be added should there be a demand for it. APPEAL members can either register to attend one workshop each week, or five workshops of their choice per session. Go to Membership for details about the different options available and their corresponding fees.

In a relaxed environment, small groups of around four to five participants discuss a range of topics in English under the supervision of an anglophone monitor. Discussion topics and activities vary each week and include debates, role-playing activities and brainstorming. For examples, consult the following session calendar.
