Open thanks

The Monash University Prato Centre would like to thank everyone who attended our Open Day on 10 May 2013. We were overwhelmed with visitors at our evening events. We even had to turn away people who wanted to do ‘Speedy Conversation Exchange’! Safe travelling to those of you who won the travel package prizes!

Don’t forget that you can participate in Conversation Exchange every week for free at the Monash Prato Centre. See our Local Engagement webpage for more information.

Conversation Exchange is back!

Welcome to students from Monash University - Faculty of Law - and from partner universities.

After the great success of last season, the weekly Conversation Exchange - Scambi di Conversazione sessions will recommence on Tuesday 16 April.

Conversation Exchange, in English and Italian, is an easy and fun way to improve your language skills and to learn about new cultures. 

How does it work?

Students teaching students!

A new Monash  Prato Centre local engagement initiative has just been successfully completed. Some Monash students enrolled in the Italian language course participated in English classes at two local middle schools (the Scuola Media Mazzoni in Prato and the Scuola Media Garibaldi in Campi Bisenzio, near Florence) as voluntary native-speakers language assistants.

The Australian and the Italian students and the teachers involved in this initiative were all enthusiastic and this initiative will be repeated with the next group of Monash students studying at the Prato Centre.

Conversation Exchange @ Lazzerini

 

Conversation Exchange - Scambi di conversazione has expanded its horizons in 2013 to include a monthly appointment in the Prato Municipal Library A. Lazzerini.

Conversation Exchange is held every Tuesday evening at the Monash Centre and is aimed giving Monash students the opportunity to practice their Italian language skills while learning something about local culture. Following the success of this initiative in 2012 the Monash Prato Centre has decided to widen the reach of this project by introducing a monthly appointment at the local library.
