Conversation Partners Program Information and Application

From Prof. Elizabeth Minei, Communication Studies  

Hello Baruch Faculty, Staff, and Community Members:

Please let your students know of the following program, Conversation Partners Program (CPP), either in class, on Blackboard, or both. CPP matches native and nonnative speakers of English for informal conversations. The partnerships are a great way for non-native students to gain confidence in English, for native speakers to gain experience in communicating across language barriers, and for both native and nonnative speakers to expand their cultural knowledge, make friends, and build a network of professional contacts. To participate, students should be willing to commit to meeting their partner about one hour per week for a minimum of six conversations. We also feature fun events throughout the semester, like trivia night, tea time, game night, professional development, and a closing ceremony for community building.

To ApplyApplication or

Orientation will be held:

  • Tuesday September 4, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. Location TBD
  • Wednesday September 12, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. Location TBD

For more information and to sign up, see  

The deadline for signing up is September 14, 2018.

Note: CPP often has more nonnative than native students signing up so please encourage both nonnative and native speakers to participate.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me via email: Thank you!
