The Conversation Partners Program is accepting registrations for the Summer 2022 semester. Please register today to reserve your spot. You will have a choice to meet your partner virtually on Zoom or in-person on campus.
Current undergraduate and graduate Simon Fraser University students, who speak English as second or an additional or language 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. If the program is full, other options for you to practice your English conversation include Let's Talk English conversation group and Plurlingual Café.
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 for one hour every week from May 16 to August 5, 2022.
