the Conversation Partners Program

From:  Prof. Elisabeth Gareis, Communication Studies

 

The Conversation Partners Program (CPP) is a great way for nonnative 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. The CPP matches native and nonnative speakers of English for informal conversations. To participate, students should be willing to commit to meeting their partner about one hour per week.

 

For more information and to sign up, see  http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/cpp

 

The deadline for signing up is Friday, September 12.
