Where will the classes be held?


After you have registered you will be given access to specific language facebook groups. You will be notified on this facebook group. Some class locations to alter each week.



How are the volunteer facilitators selected?


The Volunteer Facilitators are Monash students who are fluent in their chosen language. It may be their first language or second or third! They were also chosen because they demonstrated passion and enthusiasm during their application and interview, and they showed an enormous desire to help their peers learn a new language.




Can I use Language Drop In to practice a language I already know?


Feel free to register but each class is structured for new learners and you may not get the most out of it.




Ok, you sold me, what do I need to do to sign up?


Register by using the link on this page.


You will then receive a confirmation that you have been registered for the class.


If you have registered and there are no places left, we will notify you.


You will then be put on a list and contacted if students do cancel their registration.



The Language Drop In Class I am interested in is booked out. What do I do now?
