Conversation Partner Program

September 26, 2017

The English Conversation Partners Program pairs non-native English speakers with native English speakers for weekly conversation. The program provides a forum for international students to practice their spoken English and learn more about American culture.  Domestic students can earn a greater interest in the global community, a wider knowledge of the cultures which exist outside of American borders, and increased interest in academic opportunities like study abroad programs and foreign language instruction.

 

Participants must meet a minimum of one hour each week for the duration of the quarter.  Students are assigned partners (generally in groups of two or three) for the quarter. The students arrange their own meeting times and places. Applications, (attached), are due October 10th. The introduction social will be October 12th at 3:30pm.  This is an opportunity for conversation partners to meet for the first time.
