INTOgration is a conversation group set up to help international students improve and practise their conversational English whilst learning about British culture, regional dialects, colloquialisms, idioms and lots more! Our ultimate aim is to help these students confidently integrate into both the Newcastle University community and the local Newcastle community.
The sessions are informal and relaxed which is why we encourage students to join us for a cuppa. What is more British than having a chat over a cup of tea?
Sessions will take place on campus in the INTO building every Wednesday 5pm- 6pm. We then hold a 30 minute meeting to plan the next session.
As a volunteer, you will help to create content for sessions, teach the content to students, converse with students and help out with activities during the sessions. Volunteers must be native or fluent English speakers.
The project is led by student volunteers. We are also looking for committed volunteers who we can mentor to take over the project in September 2019.
