    Meadow Suite, Park House, Reading, RG6 6UA

    Chatterbox is a digital startup that connects refugees with universities, businesses and charities and gives them the opportunity to use their language skills and lived experiences as tutors and conversation partners in their native languages. This year the Department of Languages and Cultures and the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism at the University of Reading have partnered with Chatterbox to offer language students 150 hours of additional conversational classes in a range of languages.

    The event will be an opportunity to hear from both the students at the University of Reading and the tutors from Chatterbox, and to explore issues around the theme of migration and languages which are at the core of the research and teaching at the Centre for Multilingualism and at the Department of Languages and Cultures at the University.

    A buffet and drinks reception will follow the presentations until 19:00. Free event but please register via as soon as possible to confirm your place.
