Is your school, workplace and community multicultural?
Do you want to improve cross cultural understanding and communication? Build a more inclusive community?
The best way to really understand each other’s culture is through telling stories and learning from our experiences.
Conversity™ offers an easy starting point for talking about cultural values and address stereotypes and bias.
Conversity Users tell us...
‘I used the cards to make it much easier to have some hard conversations about prejudice in our community. Gold!’
‘My students love Conversity, the ESOL kids feel they have a real voice in the classroom, and that they can teach as well as learn.’
‘We used the Conversity serviettes at our international day lunch. Great fun to eat, talk and share.’
“My work team has 5 different nationalities. Conversity helps us get along better and to celebrate each other.’
Do you welcome International Students to your school?

International Programme Staff tell us...
‘Our students love the Conversity cards, it’s a great way for us to learn about each other’s culture and help the new students to fit in.’
‘Conversity is a great resource in our orientation programmes, when students from all over the world discover how much they have in common.’
‘I give a set of cards to each Homestay family - it really breaks the ice. They have a topic to talk about at dinner, even if Google translate gets the message a bit mixed up!’
Are you a teacher of ESOL?
Do you need a resource that works for students at all levels?
Do you want a resource that your students will love to use, to talk about topics that are familiar and safe? Sharing culture is far more than food and festivals, and when students are able to use language that describes who they are, they open the path to understanding and connection.
Used as starting points for speaking and writing, Conversity™ cards are perfect for use in ESOL classrooms, with all ages and at all levels.
ESOL Teachers tell us...
‘My ESOL students love Conversity, it’s an easy way to get them practicing and learning new language.’
‘The ESOL students feel they have a real voice in the classroom, because they get to describe their own culture and have the confidence to share it with others.’
‘While I’ve found Conversity great with our ESOL students, the cards are also a valuable starting point for helping other school staff understand students.’
