Adult learning SHOULD be fun for everyone that is why OPEN HANDS have designed a program for Adult Learning Week that focuses on having fun while learning no matter who is learning, where they come from, how old they are or what language they speak.
Our clients are primarily new Australians who are learning English and embracing Australian culture so we have prepared some fun and educational activities that will engage participants as they improve their English and embrace Australian traditions.
Event is designed and organised by:
- Isse Omar (Co-ordinator)
- Kathy Donaldson (Teacher/Counsellor)
Details of the two-day event from 3-4 September.

Welcome to Australia (Part 2) discussions and questions (Group work and Pairs)
Australia Quiz – Game where individuals are the pieces that move around a designated track following instructions when they land on selected spaces and answering questions about Australia when landing on the Question tiles. A large dice is thrown to ascertain the number of steps a participant moves forward. If the question is answered correctly, they take a step forward – if incorrect they stay on the same spot and wait until their next turn.
Match Me Up – Participants are divided into teams and given a set of pictures and words or phrases. The race is on to see which team is the quickest to match up their pictures with the words. They may have to trade some pictures or words with the other team. Who will finish first? (Teamwork)
Personal Development – Gaining confidence and improving self-esteem – discussions and activities.
