Community Conversation Partner Program
ELI’s Conversation Partner Program offers students the opportunity to interact with native English speaking volunteers from the Missoula community. This program provides a friendly environment in which students can improve their speaking and listening skills, meet new people, learn more about American culture, and gain confidence in expressing their thoughts and ideas in English. By participating in the program, students can also share interesting aspects about their own cultures with people in the Missoula community.
In the Conversation Partner Program, students participate in small group conversations with native English speakers and other ELI students. Groups discuss a variety of topics about American culture, the students’ culture, personal interests and hobbies, life experiences, goals, and so on. For the fall semester, conversation groups will meet for six one-hour sessions. Classes will take place on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 pm.
If you are a student interested in signing up for the program, please fill out the student form.
If you are a native English speaker who would like to volunteer as a conversation partner, please fill out the volunteer form.
