Let’s Talk Conversation Group

Let’s Talk’ is a place for international students to practice their English conversation skills with the assistance of local students. It also seeks to promote cultural exchange, language sharing, networking, and friendships between local and international students.

Local students, known as ‘volunteer chatterboxes’ or facilitators, run conversation sessions whereby they meet with groups of international students for a casual chat. In addition, training sessions are organised for the ‘chatterboxes’, as are group social gatherings.

We invite everyone (VCA and postgraduate students as well) to join us as a ‘chatterbox’ or as a student wishing to improve his/her English skills.

Club Aims:

  1. To provide an opportunity for international students to practice their English conversation skills with the help of local students.
  2. To provide a place for cross-cultural and cross-language learning .
  3. To  break down language, cultural and social barriers between local and international students and encourage greater interaction between them.
  4. To encourage more social networking opportunities for international students and help them feel less isolated.
  5. To provide social networking opportunities for post-graduate international students – owing to the high emphasis on independent research, post-graduate students can go through their whole degrees without meeting a lot of their fellow students.
