Winter 2016 English Conversation Partner Program
Student and volunteer participants wanted for the English Conversation Partner Program!
We need volunteers who speak English like a native language to spend an hour a week (or more) working with students who are non-native speakers of English and want to practice their speaking and listening skills. Please review our orientation and come by the Sylvania Student Learning Center to find out more. Submit inquiries and volunteer availability forms to Shani Ong or Laurel Spillum in the center. New volunteers will be asked to read our English Conversation Partner Program Handbook and talk with an Office Lead or the English Coordinator before working with students. For a humorous introduction to how to be more culturally sensitive, participants may also view The Do's and Don'ts of Cultural Sensitivity.
