Barney's English Language Cafe
The English Language Cafe missional community is headed up by Erin Ring and Ashlee Arnold, and meets on Monday evenings (7.30-9pm) at Barney's and Thursday afternoons (4-5.30pm) at the Newnham UTAS campus (in the Old Uni Cafe in A Block). The cafe seeks to bless and serve non-native speakers of English by providing them with an opportunity to practice their English in an informal setting, meet some locals and other internationals, and learn a bit about Australian culture. A number of native English speaking volunteers act as facilitators of group discussions and provide themes to stimulate conversation. There are also opportunities to join in with social events, and see a little of Tasmania!
