Learning and making friends

Moe and Ngoc are in the same English language class at Laverton Community Education Centre. They both live locally and finding work is really important to them.

‘I want to learn English so I can find work in Australia’, says Moe.

Learning English is not easy so it really helps to be surrounded by friendly and supportive faces.

The English language program at Laverton Community Education Centre gives people the opportunity to practice their conversational skills in small and friendly classes.

‘We also learn about life here in Australia’, says Ngoc.

The program focusses on developing basic skills in English speaking, listening, reading and writing.

It also helps to get them prepare for employment, which is why it’s perfect for Moe and Ngoc.
