Practising English and sharing culture 


Charles Darwin University students from the Adult  Migrant English Program (AMEP) visited Nakara Preschool recently to share their culture as part of Harmony Day celebrations.

Singing, hair-braiding, Chinese hat making and cooking were a few of the activities the students shared with the children.

The class also planted a mock orange tree with the students – orange being the symbolic colour of Harmony Day.

The students, who are currently studying the Certificate I in Spoken and Written English originate from many countries including Sudan, Taiwan, Vietnam and China.

Amanda Docksey, the class lecturer, organised the successful excursion.

‘It was a wonderful opportunity for the AMEP students to practise their English while demonstrating activities from their own culture to an enthusiastic and receptive audience,’ Ms Docksey said.
