Please note that classes will resume on 1st February 2016. See below for details.
In partnership with St Paul's Cathedral we host free English conversation classes on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Monday classes are at St Paul’s and Wednesday classes at St James’.
Venue for Monday:
St Paul’s Cathedral Education and Ministry Centre,
Chapter House Lane, off Flinders St (Enter through the carpark opposite Federation Square).
Venue for Wednesday:
St James’ Old Cathedral Conference Centre
2-10 Batman St (off King St, beside Flagstaff Gardens).
Classes open for conversation at 2pm. The English lesson runs from 2.30pm to 4pm. At 4pm there is a Bible story and discussion, finishing at 4.30pm. Monday classes also include an optional Christian worship time followed by a meal.
For each class, the English lesson is based around a theme relevant to newcomers to Australia. The Bible story is chosen to follow this theme.
The classes are fun, they help students gain confidence in using English and are a place where friendships can be made.
Each week around 40 students come for classes. The classes are run by volunteers from various Melbourne churches.
These classes are free and welcome anybody who wishes to improve their conversational English.
