Let’s Chat in English…

Epsom Baptist Church’s primary contact with the community is through English conversation classes that we’ve called ‘Let’s Chat in English.’ Those who attend the classes – Thursdays in term-time from 1pm – 2:40pm – are mostly Chinese folk. This reflects the evolving nature of the Epsom community. The classes are free, although students are asked to contribute a gold coin each session to help with refreshments and consumables.

There are three classes, with beginners making up the bulk of the students. The tutor of this large group is a retired teacher, helped out by several volunteers who translate as required.

An intermediate group is tutored by an Auckland University post-grad student, again with a volunteer to help with translation as needed. This tutor has (in mid-August 2017) completed a certificate in ESOL Home Language Tutoring.

A last group with more advanced English skills is tutored by a CELTA trained teacher.

The convenor of Let’s Chat – Donglan Zhang – has a Masters degree in teaching English language, as well as a couple of post-graduate diplomas in related subjects.
