English Conversation Partners

By having an English Conversation partner, you can help a student have a deeper cultural experience with a native English speaker while they are in the United States. Converse with students in English to improve their vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. Meet with students 1-2 hours at least every other week to discuss basic topics.
