Culture Cafe

Volunteer with us!

Make new friends, practice your English and learn about different cultures

At Culture Cafe, we aim to create a fun and supportive environment for all students! Even if you’ve mastered the language, come and socialise because the program goes beyond practicing English towards cultural and language exchange. We promise a good time with some of the best people you will ever meet! 

Every week we will have different activities such as board games and movie nights as well as free food and drinks! 

UNSW is a vast melting pot of incredibly diverse cultures and we want to celebrate every one

When: Every week on Thursdays 4 - 5 PM

Meet the coordinator

Hello, 你好, guten tag, bonjour, hola, こんにちは, and I think I have officially run out of ways to say hello in different languages.  

I am Yin Yin, the Culture Cafe coordinator for 2020. I am so passionate about what we try to do at Culture Cafe because there is nothing that I love more than learning foreign languages, meeting people from all over the world and discovering new cultures.

I was once an exchange student myself so I understand the challenges of moving away from everything you know and being thrown in a totally new country that speaks a different language and has a different culture. I know for myself that programs like Culture Cafe really helped me get out of my shell whilst I was living abroad and I met some of my best friends in these programs. This could totally happen for you as well at Culture Cafe!

I promise that it will be a home away from home and you will always find a friend in our wonderful volunteers and the people you meet!
