Practice English

Conversation Partner Program

ESL Slideshow

The Conversation Partner Program brings non-native (IEP students) and native English speakers together. IEP students will have the opportunity to practice English in a relaxed environment, and gain fluency through exposure to American idiom and slang.

How it works:

  • one-on-one partnerships
  • participants are matched according to their schedules and shared interests
  • partners decide when and where to meet once a week
  • 150+ partnerships since the program began in 2007.
