Volunteers Volunteers are needed to help with conversation and writing and reading skills in English as a Second Language classes. A good standard of written and spoken English is required and a knowledge of Australian colloquialisms (e.g. terms such as sunnies, Tassie, cardie, blowie, hankie, and pressie).
Volunteering in an ESL class at Pines Learning is a delightful experience. The students and tutors are welcoming and friendly and the work is highly rewarding, because the students often make such good progress. Volunteers are an intrinsic part of the classroom, and enable the tutors to break the class into small groups or even allow individual work.
