Conversation classes information

The UNSW Business School offers casual “English Conversation classes” where we meet up to talk socially, get to know one another, and practice our spoken English. 

This is a great place to meet other students and gain confidence. Classes are available online and face-to-face, take only 1 hr and require no prep. In these classes a fellow student will host the discussion, making sure that conversation is easy for everyone and covers a diverse range of topics such as current affairs, friendships, Australian culture, and university life in general. 

Class schedule: 

Monday 12-1pm ONLINE

Wednesday 5-6pm ON CAMPUS – ROOM QUAD1042 (K-E15-1042)

Thursday 4-5pm ONLINE 

 

In these classes we chat about current affairs, social life and play English learning games. It would be great to see you there to practice conversational English skills together, gain speaking confidence and make new friends!

Past student feedback

English conversation is a good experience for me. I have mastered a lot of new words and local slang in a relaxed conversation, which allows me to better understand the local culture and form English thinking.

The conversation class provided us a relaxed and friendly talking atmosphere. I learnt a lot about culture and interesting attractions from different countries’ classmates. I highly recommend future students choose this conversation class.

This program has helped me a lot to build my confidence in speaking English. Through the weekly conversation classes, I learnt many different cultures from new friends and Australian slangs I have never heard before. Therefore, I really encourage students to join this class as they will not only improve their English skills but also expand their networks by meeting new buddies throughout the class.
