The ELI Conversation Pairs Program matches American students/fluent English speakers with international students/English language learners. This program offers a great opportunity for international students/English language learners to practice English and become more familiar with American culture. At the same time, it provides American students/fluent English speakers the chance to engage with diverse cultures and languages while meeting people they might not ordinarily meet. It's a mutual exchange that fosters language learning, cultural exploration, and meaningful connections. Pairs are encouraged to meet for approximately one hour per week throughout the semester.
