International Student Development Discussion Group

International Student Development Discussion Group

Improve your English and meet new friends

"To provide a comfortable environment where international students participate in discussions to improve their English and share their cultural experiences, make friends and be more socially active."

- Discussion Group Team Mission Statement

Discussion groups are for international students who want to improve their English language speaking skills in a safe, friendly environment. Led by student volunteers who form the Discussion Group Team, these informal discussion groups also give you the opportunity to learn more about the Australian culture and make new friends.

There are a variety of topics discussed including news, popular culture, Australian slang and topics from participants' suggestions. The focus is on learning more about Australia whilst gradually improving communication skills, especially public speaking. These groups are informal and fun, so expect to play trivia, games of 'Taboo' and more!
