English Connection

English Connection is a free English conversation class run by members of City North Baptist Church, held on Sunday mornings.

Anyone who wishes to improve their English speaking ability is welcome to come no matter what country or culture they are from. Parents are very welcome to bring their children as there will be lots of fun and interesting activities specifically for the children to do as well. Some of the people who would want to come to English Connection include: people who have recently moved to Australia; working parents who still struggle with speaking English while their children who go to school speak English relatively well; people on 1 or 2 year working holiday visas; formal English language students; refugees.

Each week we will do some fun activities together as we discuss different topics to do with Australian culture, living in Brisbane, world news and events and so on. We will also have the opportunity to consider what God might have to say about these topics.

Each week we will also have a light lunch together. Having a meal as part of the weekly program is an important part of the program, as it helps everyone to get to know each other in a relaxed way and assist with developing good friendships.

A number of the leaders of English Connection are qualified and experienced TESOL and Language teachers. Some of the leaders also have school-aged children who they will be bringing along to English Connection and participating in the activities that are especially designed for children.
