English Conversation Groups (ECG) are run by trained student volunteers in a fun and friendly environment online. The program consists of five, weekly, one-hour sessions during Autumn and Spring sessions.

Spring 2020 Program via Zoom

The Spring 2020 program will begin in Week 4 (10 August 2020). Due to the current context, all sessions will be run via the video-conferencing platform Zoom. You can learn more about Zoom (including how to download Zoom on your device) here (opens in a new window).

Why participate?

ECG aims to assist international students and local students from a non-English speaking background to develop:

  • confidence in English conversation
  • a friendship network and cross-cultural understanding
  • knowledge of Australian slang and presentation skills
  • a greater understanding of the University

Why facilitate?

ECG facilitation will challenge student volunteers and allow them to gain:

  • leadership skills
  • new friends and greater involvement in university life
  • credit for ten hours of volunteer work (a requirement of the TESOL course and The Academy)
  • a certificate of completion.

Participants and facilitators will also be invited to an end-of-session celebration where they’ll be in the running to win prizes.
