English Language Cafe - an initiative of St Barnabas' Anglican Church. | about learning English | Scoop.it
The English Language Cafe at Barney's is a great place to come and practice your conversational and listening skills.

The Cafe is facilitated by members of the Launceston community who volunteer their time to assist anyone who speaks English as a second language.

In our first year - 2012 - we have seen over 100 individuals come and enjoy the discussion and activities at the Cafe. Each week at the Cafe the volunteers present a topic for discussion, and then we all enjoy the discussion and variety of activities around that topic. Some of the topics that we presented this year included: driving, food, greetings, small talk, Aussie animals, destinations to go to in Tasmania and beach safety. The Cafe is not only a place to practice English, but a wonderful place to met new friends and be involved in a fun, caring community.

This is what some of those attending said about what they enjoyed about the English Language Cafe at Barney's:
