Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program pairs an international student with an American student or fluent English speaker to allow them to practice their English in casual, conversational setting and to help them adjust to life here at Tulane. This program helps to bridge the gap between the International and American communities on campus. Partners are created within the first few weeks of every semester, and pairs are expected to meet at least five times per semester, for at least an hour each time. This is a great way to meet people you wouldn't ordinarily meet and help an international student have the full Tulane experience. For more information, contact us at LearnEng@tulane.edu.

For the Spring semester, partners will be paired February 1st on a first come, first serve basis.
