Building confidence and connections through conversation

MISSION

Conversation Over Borders started in Brighton during the COVID-19 pandemic, to bring people together in a time of isolation. The project connects volunteer tutors with asylum seekers and refugees for one-on-one English conversation classes online. This helps increase confidence in spoken English and builds connections.

You can take part, no matter where in the world you are.​

PLAtforming stories

Alongside the English language project, Conversation Over ​Borders platforms the stories of people from around the world.

We believe that sharing stories allows us to move away from stereotypes and the sensationalisation of the media to show that we have more in common than we do dividing us.

These stories are coming soon, and will be found here:​
