English Conversation Time

English Conversation Time is a flexible program that gathers internationals and Americans for English practice, friendship and cross-cultural exchanges. It provides international students and visiting scholars with a safe, relaxed, outside-the-classroom opportunity to interact with individual Americans, American families and other Internationals drawn from diverse backgrounds. It’s a great opportunity for Internationals to use English outside of a textbook and socialize. Americans also benefit from the program as they learn from Internationals about life in other corners of the world.
