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.

The Conversation Partner program will take place virtually this semester.  You can have conversations on Zoom or the phone and stay connected via social media and texts!  If you'd like to particiate, please sumit the ELI Conversation Partners form.
