Welcome to the TALK ENGLISH website.

Mission statement
Our mission is to provide high-quality, free English lessons to all who need them, delivered by qualified and trained teachers.


We are a Durban-based organisation, started in 2005, and provide free English classes
 • on Saturday mornings
 • from 9.15 am to 12 noon
 • at Addington Primary School
 • in the Point area of Durban, South Africa.

Classes are open to adults of any nationality. We currently offer English lessons to 5 groups:
 •  Beginner Adults
 •  Pre-Intermediate Adults
 •  Intermediate Adults
 •  Primary Schoolchildren
 •  Medical Professionals.

We also hold short courses according to need in Business English, Academic English and English for Tourism.

Lessons are taught by CELTA or TEFL-trained volunteers. Refreshments are provided mid-morning and students can borrow from a small popular library of suitable books. Students who are able pay what they can towards running costs.

The Talk English vision is to continue and expand our current work with refugees, but also to use the learning, skills and expertise within Talk English to help the many South African children and adults who need to speak and write better English for their studies and work.
