The Conversation Partner program is a exciting opportunity for mutual cultural exchange while practicing conversation skills in English and other languages (foreign language is not a requirement) between the international student and domestic student. Partners will meet one on one for at least one hour per week. Discussion topics will be available to fascilate conversation. Plus, monthly activities will be hosted for the conversation partners.
Details: Applications will be accepted at the beginning of each semester. Partners will be matched within the first few weeks of the semester. Every effort will be made to accommodate your preferences and availability; however your preferences are not guaranteed. You will be notified of your conversation partner at the event following the kickoff event or by email. The email will include contact information for your conversation partner plus instructions and expectations.
