GS-180 / GS-106 "English Conversation Partners" pairs native speakers of English with international students for one-on-one weekly conversation.  The course has three three main goals, providing an opportunity:

-for non-native speakers of English to practice conversation skills outside the classroom;
-for US native speakers to engage in service and reflect upon the act of service through their role as conversation partner;
-for all participants to cultivate intercultural connections.

All students will develop a deeper understanding of their partner's home culture, country and language as well as gain a new perspective on their own culture, country and language.
