About this Event

NEW: Sessions run October - June ( training dates August and September)

It takes a lot of practice to feel confident speaking a new language. Our English Conversation Mentors provide support and encouragement to an adult who wants to practice their new English skills in a casual, social situation. The emphasis is on social conversation, not on teaching so our pairs talk about their families, food, London and whatever else they may have in common. Our volunteers find this program hugely rewarding and many new friendships have been made by the participants in this program.

WHO: Our Adult Volunteers are interested in and accepting of new cultures, are warm and friendly, and have good verbal and written communication skills. We're looking for people who are organized and have basic computer skills.

Volunteers for this role must speak English fluently and be over 18. No teaching experience is necessary.

WHERE: Virtual role, done from the comfort of your home.

WHEN: One hour weekly minimum between October and June according to your schedule. Total 1 year commitment which includes training in August or September. You choose the time and day that works best for you. We can work around your planned time away for holidays.

This session is for interested parties to learn more about the program, ask questions, and see if it's the right fit for you!
