Thank you for your interest in being a conversation partner! The Conversation Partners program promotes informal meetings between international ESL students and fluent English speakers which emphasizes an information exchange through the use of English in natural conversation. It allows both participants to learn more about each other's culture, provides the non-native English partner an opportunity to practice conversing in English, fosters international friendships and opens opportunities to share about campus activities and events.
Conversation Partner Requirements:
Applications are typically due the Tuesday of the second week of classes each semester. A matching meeting is held at 3 p.m. the day after the application deadline and a meet and greet event is held at 3 p.m. the following day.
