Intensive English Program

Conversation Partners

Conversation Partners is designed to help the students in the Intensive English Program improve their English language comprehension and speaking skills by matching them with American native speakers of English.  A conversation partner can be a student, faculty member, or community member.  If you are selected to be a conversation partner, you will be scheduled to meet on campus with your partner for about one hour each week.  This volunteer experience is an excellent opportunity for you  to meet and engage in conversation with international students in order to help them become better English speakers and to learn about their cultures and experiences.
