Talk English is a volunteer organisation that has been going for over 12 years and teaches adults to speak English to enable them to get better jobs. Adult students of all ages and educational standards have benefitted. Many are professionals in various fields but are hampered by a language barrier.

Classes take place on Saturday mornings in four groups - beginner, pre-intermediate, intermediate and upper intermediate. Unfortunately, the classes are limited and they have a long waiting list. All the teachers are voluntary and either CELTA or TEFL trained.

There is no cost to the students, but they do need funds for administration expenses such as rent and materials for the students.

Talk English has kindly been offered a performance of Shall We Dance for September 12, 2018, at the Playhouse as a fundraiser and are selling tickets at R100 each. Tickets are obtainable either by phoning Janet at 072 422 3233 or by email to
