Learning English

English Conversation Groups

Whatever your level of English language, we have a group for you. Our groups are about learning new language skills and having opportunities to practice with both native English speakers and other multicultural learners. Great for migrants and refugees in Palmerston North.

You will feel welcome and comfortable in any one of our language classes. Your confidence to participate in the New Zealand community will grow as you improve your English language skills with our skilled and dedicated facilitators and fellow students.

Our English classes and other activities at MMC are FREE for everyone to join. It is also flexible for you to join, you do not need to stick to a fixed schedule, just come whenever you can.

Current Schedule and Tutors

The usual location for our English classes is the MMC Centre, Hancock Community House, 77-85 King Street, Palmerston North.

On Friday afternoons (1.00pm-2.30pm) we have an outdoor English conversation class (English in the Park) at Victoria Esplanade. This is an opportunity to join fellow students and our tutor Grey in a pleasant outdoor setting. If the weather is suitable, the class typically does a ‘walk and talk’ in the Esplanade or at another place of interest nearby. Grey is a keen nature photographer so it is also a good opportunity to learn something about New Zealand’s flora and fauna.
