Creating an inclusive, culturally diverse town is the main goal of couple Annette and Chris Turk.
Over the past three years the pair have been running 'conversation groups' out of Junee's Uniting Church hall to teach English to those living and working in town on visas.
Ironically, the group began after a conversation.
"We have this thing called open kitchen with the combined churches, and I was often doing the dishes with this fella from Taiwan, then what got to talking and that's how it all started progressing from there," Mr Turk said.
Those attending the group are usually in Australia on a one or four year visa from China, Taiwan and South Korea, according to Mr Turk who said they can have anywhere between six and 20 people in a class.
"We don't actually know their language ourselves, so it is a challenge but it works," he said.
"They'e fair dinkum, they really want to learn English and those here for four years especially are really prepared to put in the hard yards."
Mrs Turk has travelled to China herself in the past to help at an orphanage, and understands that language is the biggest barrier to fitting into a culture.
"It was incredible, a wonderful experience and I wanted to bring them all back with me," she said.
"It goes both ways, we're all learning from each other and it's a big cultural change on both sides."
It was as much about teaching them English as it is about helping them socialise, Mrs Turk said.
"We have a lot of fun, they laugh a lot too," she said.
"We play games, we celebrate birthdays and we have table tennis down in the big hall here so sometimes we have luncheons with a bit of everyone's traditional food and a little table tennis competition.
"They're just blossoming and we're so thrilled to be a part of it."
Mr Turk said they had grown to become family with many of the group members, with some even bringing their children to the country who now attend Junee schools.
"They're lovely, warm, friendly people," he said.
"For those who are not as accepting, I say just be friends. These people are strangers in our country and we should be loving and welcoming them and giving them our time."
