University English Language Support Programs
- International Student Centre
The Language and Cultural Exchange (LCE) program is designed to facilitate interaction and mutual exchange between international students and local students and staff at the University. The program matches current students and staff at the University with native speakers of the requested language.
Talking with Aussies
This Volunteer Program currently has about 170 trained volunteers who work with international students. Volunteers are linked with one or more students, who then arrange informal meetings to suit their individual needs and time availability. Our volunteers are men and women from all walks of life; from those who are actively engaged in work or study but spend some lunchtimes with their students, to retirees with a broader range of time options. http://international.adelaide.edu.au/life/current/talkaussies/
