ELI Conversation Partner Program

Perhaps the best way to learn English is to speak with native speakers.  Thus, each term the ELI seeks to pair interested students with an American native speaker of English for about one hour a week for informal conversation outside of class.  In some cases, the conversation will be entirely in English.  In other cases, the American partner may wish to exchange practice in English for practice in the student's native language.  Students have the opportunity to sign up to participate in this program at any time during the semester.

If you are an ELI student who would like a conversation partner, or if you would like to volunteer to become a conversation partner to an ELI student, click here to complete the registration form. You will be contacted after your form has been submitted.
