English Conversation Group Support

The Conversation Group is looking for enthusiastic volunteers who have the confidence to support people to practise conversational English language skills at a weekly 2 hour session. This might be by reading and discussing a newspaper article together, reading letters, sharing information about the North East, or supporting new learners to meet other people and relax in a friendly, welcoming environment

The group is run collectively by its members, and aims to be inclusive, anti-discriminatory and sensitive to the challenges members may face.

Some of the things you could do at the Conversation Group:

  • Welcome people and chat to them
  • Help plan activities
  • Make tea and coffee
  • Show people how to use computers
  • Help with fundraising
  • Be part of the sewing group
  • Translation

The list is determined by the energy of our members, both volunteers and English learners. You could volunteer on a weekly, fortnightly or occasional basis.

Skills

  • Patience
  • Awareness of issues that people from other countries might face
  • Equality is of huge importance to the group and aims to respect all members and their safety
