Conversation Partners Program
Are you a multilingual student who would like to improve your English conversation skills in a one-to-one setting with a student volunteer?
The Conversation Partners Program is for English as an Additional Language (EAL) undergraduate and graduate Simon Fraser University students who wish to be paired with a student volunteer to practice and improve their conversational English in a friendly, supportive environment.
The Conversation Partners Program is accepting registrations for the Spring 2021 semester. Please register today to reserve your spot. Meetings will be held virtually on either Zoom or Blackboard Collaborate.
The Conversation Partners1 Program is designed to support multilingual learners' English conversation skills as well as help them with their social and cultural needs in our current online learning environment.
Current undergraduate and graduate Simon Fraser University students, whose first language is not English, are eligible.
How to register
Interested students must register each semester using the form below.
A limited number of spaces are available and will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. If all available spaces become full, you will be invited to join a waitlist for the following semester.
Once the schedule is finalized at the beginning of each new semester, a Student Commons staff member will contact you by e-mail with instructions on how to book your partner.
Conversation Partners will meet every week from January 11-March 26, 2021. To change the day or time, notify your Partner.
