Conversation Partners Program
We provide opportunities for English language learners to practice speaking and listening in English. Meet one-on-one with a Conversation Partner to practice conversation, build English vocabulary, and learn cultural expressions.
Conversation Partners can meet with you to do any of the following:
- Discuss specific questions about grammar and vocabulary
- Learn new phrases about social life, Philadelphia culture, slang, etc.
- Practice a presentation or interview
Check our events page for details about other activities available for Conversation Partners.
