US Student Interest Form -- English Conversation Partner Program, Spring 2015


 US Students: To participate in spring 2015, your 1st step is to fill out the online interest form.  

   
 Online Interest Form 
This lets us know you would like to join the program in the spring.  Once we find a conversation partner for you, we will send you details on how to formally register for the course credit.  Most students will not register for the course credit until January, during the first week or two of class.  Contact the LRC if you have questions or want more information before completing the interest form.

Conversation partners

"Normally, I would be too nervous to have lengthy conversations with non-native speakers of English, but through this program I have learned to take chances, because great friendships can stem from a simple hello." 

ECPP

"I made a couple of friendships that I am grateful for because they’ve helped me become more interested in the lives of other international students."

Conversation partners

"We have a lot in common with students from other countries. Participating in this program helped me realize that we actually do have a lot of starting points for conversation. We just have to be willing to say something first.

ECPP

"We got into some spirited debates about religion, so it helped me to think more critically and closely about what I believe."

"Communicating with students from different cultures is immensely important, and has numerous benefits. Everyone's story is unique, and important to tell."
