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 is accepting registrations for the Summer and Fall 2019 semesters. Please register today to reserve your spot.
The Conversation Partners1 Program is designed to support multilingual learners' English conversation skills as well as help them with their social and cultural needs as they transition into and through the university.
All current undergraduate and graduate SFU students 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 we have found a partner for you, a Student Commons staff member will contact you by e-mail.
All meetings take place on campus. Students make arrangements with their partners about where and when to meet. Students may choose to meet at the Student Learning Commons, Student Central, or one of the many coffee shops on campus.
Conversation Partners will meet every week until the end of the semester. To change a location or time, notify your Partner.
