Volunteering: An opportunity to learn through service
to 30th September
English Conversation Cafe Volunteer
We are looking for a volunteer to help with our English Conversation Cafe from 10-12 on a Tuesday.
English Conversation Cafe is a session on a Tuesday morning for people with english as an additional language to come and practice speaking, listening and writing to improve their english abilities. The class is very informal and has different activities each week such as word searches, conversation prompts, research tasks or worksheets to improve peoples vocabulary and speaking abilities.
The class is mixed abilities and recieves a varying number of attendees each week- it can be anywhere from 2-25 people! Recently as we have had more people attending, we are looking for some volunteer support so that we can break the class into groups and have someone working with them invividually depending on ability. Volunteers also can support with filling out registration forms with new attendees, which can take quite a long time depending on the language barrier.
We are looking for a volunteer who is friendly, confident and chatty, preferably with experience speaking to people who have english as an additional language. Experience teaching such as TEFL etc is helpful but not at all essential- the main thing is kindness and patience!
Please apply now if you have any questions.
