    "I enjoyed the guidance as well as company of friendly facilitators at English Connect. The sessions served as a stress buster from a busy week of researching and the program taught me about Australian culture as well as helping me to overcome culture shock; which I experienced like most new international students. I had trouble interacting with Australians, but sessions on initiating small talk, how to dine, topics that should be avoided in a conversation, and other useful discussions played a pivotal role in improving my confidence level. Participating in English Connect's programs helped me to feel more comfortable talking about my research to a general audience. I participated in the science communication competition FameLab for which I won the People’s Choice Awards and being a part of English Connect helped me to improve the content and clarity of my winning script." - Muthu Vellayappan, FameLab People's Choice Award 2018
