WorldCat Connections: International Virtual Exchange

A Virtual Educational Exchange Experience

For thirty years, Central Washington University has hosted international students on its Ellensburg campus for English language and cultural exchange programs. This year we will be bringing CWU to you!

Wordcat Connections is a 4-day seminar-style course featuring communication skills practice. With small classes (maximum 16 students) and discussion groups (maximum 6 students), everyone will have many opportunities to actively participate and communicate with teachers and CWU student conversation group leaders.

WorldCat Connections will meet using Zoom. Internet and equipment capable of supporting online video conferencing are necessary for participation.

The Program:

The first Worldcat Connections series will explore higher education. Participants will learn about American universities and student life while sharing their own experiences as students in their own countries. Meeting for two weeks on Tuesdays and Thursdays,* the program will feature:

  • Teacher-led lesson on the topic of the day (9:00-9:50  AM)
  • Focused small group discussions and mini-presentations (10-10:50 AM)
  • Free conversation activities with CWU student group leaders (11:30 AM-12:30 PM)
