Conversation over the Barbecue

  • May 29, 2018

Laughter and camaraderie are the key component of the English Conversation over the BBQ class each Tuesday night at Refugee Hub. The other unique feature is it is men only!

Newly arrived men gather for a conversational English class aimed at practical conversation to assist socialisation and interaction in daily and working life. Most of the participants have been in Australia for less than two years. The topics vary and have covered discussing your weekend, driving basics, agree and disagreeing, grammar and pronunciation.

After the class, the men gather around a barbecue and have a meal with mentors. The focus here is socialisation and relationships with other men in the community. The programme has been running for 17 weeks and participant’s confidence with English conversation is improving rapidly.

Our thanks to Woolworths for supporting this programme in its infancy in 2017.
