CHAtS conversational English program

CHAtS, short for Conversational Help and Support, is a program for international students based on the Bentley and Kalgoorlie Campuses wanting to improve their English to help with their studies and adjustment to life in Australia.

More conversational English at Kalgoorlie

As well as the CHAtS program on the Kalgoorlie Campus, conversational English sessions are also run on Saturdays from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm with a student advisor. Check your Blackboard for more information.

The program is a practical way you can improve your conversational English in an informal setting. Attended by mainly English as a second language (ESL) students, the program develops English skills through fun, conversation-based activities.

If you or someone you know would like help with your conversational English, contact us to get involved.
