Free English Conversation Classes (Suspended until Further Notice)

Classes are suspended due to COVID-19 from March 16 2020 until further notice.

Each Wednesday there is a free English conversation class that is open to any adult who wants to improve their English speaking skills. Students engage in a variety of speaking and listening activities based on a theme relevant to newcomers in Melbourne. Following a conversation lesson, a simple Bible story is told and discussed within smaller groups. 


Each week around 50 students come for classes. The classes are run by volunteers from various Melbourne churches.

These classes are a great way to grow in confidence in your language skills and to make lasting friendships in Melbourne.

Where to go:
St James’ Old Cathedral Conference Centre
12 Batman St (off King St, beside Flagstaff Gardens).

*Every Wednesday starting on 5 February 2020
2:00 pm- Class open for conversation
2:30 pm - English class begins
4:00 pm- Bible story and discussion

For more information or to join the volunteer team:
Email Reverend Jess here.

Rev. Jess also hosts an English Conversation Bible study at her apartment every Wednesday at 5pm. Students are invited into her home to read, talk about the Bible and to eat dinner together. All are welcome! If you are interested in joining, please email Reverend Jess
