QUIC English Conversation Program has recruited Fall Term student volunteers (peers) and is now full. Our volunteers work in a group environment to support international students who wish to improve their English conversation skills. Program volunteers typically contribute 2 hours of their time each week. We meet weekly in the Conversation Group on Thursdays, 5:30 pm at the QUIC.
The World Link Program is an intercultural program that promotes learning, sharing, acceptance, and celebration of diverse cultures within the Queen’s community.
