ESL: Conversation Partners

Apply to become a Conversation Partner

"The staff are very friendly and helpful. I made many, many friends here. My classes helped me a lot - especially with writing and grammar. I had many opportunities to practice speaking, so my speaking skill also improved."
Jasmine, Taiwan

One of our regular activities that helps students improve their oral English and gain American friends is Conversation Partners. You can be paired with a native speaker of English for extra language practice outside of class. In the summer, conversation groups may take the place of partners. Our students have visited their conversation partner's hometown, gone out to restaurants to eat, studied together, gone to parties, and done other activities together.
