Improve your English at the Museum of Liverpool

14 May 2019 by Matt

In our museum we tell the story of the city of Liverpool, a city that has been shaped by people from all around the world.  This year we are launching a new public session for those who might want to improve their spoken English.  Jess from our education team tells us more-

“When I used to come the Museum of Liverpool on class trips as an English language teacher, I really noticed how much my students enjoyed it. They seemed really engaged in the objects and displays, and our visits often led to great conversations where they talked about a much wider range of topics than in class. I found that the museum is a great place to improve language skills, because it’s full of real and engaging collections, which help learners to connect new words to their own lived experiences.

Now that I’m in the Education team here, I want to work on making our collections as accessible as possible to everyone, especially those whose first language isn’t English. This is why I’m starting some public sessions aimed at people who want to improve their speaking and listening, while learning about the museum and the city in a relaxed and communicative way. We’ll take a look at Liverpool’s vibrant history with a language focus on vocabulary, pronunciation and communication skills. Learn about trading and the docks in the Great Port gallery, walk along our Timeline for an overview of the city’s history, and get to know some real Liverpudlians in the People’s Republic.

Whether you’re living, working or studying in Liverpool, or just here for a quick visit, if you want to improve your English language skills while learning about this fantastic city, come along to one of our free sessions. Sessions are aimed at intermediate learners and above, although learners of all levels are very welcome!”

We will running public sessions on 8 June and 15 June from 11am-12.30pm at the Museum of Liverpool. No need to get in touch, just turn up on the day.  Keep up to date with our what’s on page to see other sessions as they come up.
