Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program brings non-native and native English speakers together. Non-native speakers will 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

100+ partnerships since the program began in 2007. Email for more information or to register.

Coffee & Tea Hour

Come to unwind or perk up! Join us every Wednesday at 4:45 PM in the CTL Solarium (BRK 460). It’s a great way to practice conversational English in an open, informal setting. We look forward to seeing you.
