International students are helped with both English listening and conversational skills by being a part of weekly ESL (English as a Second Language) convo club. Volunteers who are native English speakers and have a desire to help others understand spoken and idiomatic English are needed to serve as conversation partners for students to practice their English. There is always a prepared topic and related questions for students and volunteers to discuss. Usually conversation partners are rotated and there is an opportunity to connect with a variety of students.
Conversation Club – Conversation club is held Wednesday evenings from 6:45 – 8pm. We are always looking for more native speakers to come and engage the international students in conversation! Convo club takes place on campus in the Chess Center (room TBA). Contact Darrell Caldwell for more info.
