Announcement: Yumi Sakses Communication English for PALM workers (24 June 2022)
It was brought to my attention that some seasonal workers in Australia and New Zealand are experiencing challenges in communication in English in everyday situations.

Therefore I have developed a new FB page to drip-feed daily posts giving them lessons in basic English.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/511180370760809

They will have the grammar and vocabulary for daily conversations, language functions (giving and following directions , making requests and complaints, agreeing and disagreeing, form-filling etc) and situations (at the doctor, dentist, supermarket, police station , restaurant etc.) Also the simple language of understanding contracts.

The FB page will be open to all nationalities, not just NiVans.
It might also be useful for people who need to brush up on their basic English.

Please and friends and relatives who are already seasonal workers or preparing to go and share the page.
