Conversations@UTS brings together international students and a local volunteer for casual conversation. Meet new people while practicing English in a safe and relaxed environment.
When we are all at UTS Campus we run free, two-hour group sessions every weekday (during session) at HELPS Volunteer Lounge (CB01.05.01). No booking required - just turn up! (Now that we're studying remotely because of COVID 19, these sessions are now online via zoom! Join the fun, make friends and keep improving your conversation skills!)
See the Conversations@UTS page to view our timetable.
The UTS HELPS Buddy Program matches international students with local students for weekly conversation.
This unique opportunity will help you develop your English in a one-to-one setting while making a friend. In meeting with a local student, you will also have the chance to learn more about Australian culture while sharing your own! (The Buddy Program is online! Make a friend through zoom and keep improving your 1 to 1 conversation skills)
