English Conversation Program

The English Conversation Program is designed to assist fluent speakers, like degree-seeking international students, post-doctoral fellows, visiting researchers, and their spouses/partners in mastering spoken language, pronunciation, and skills for daily communication. Student facilitators meet with participants weekly for 8 weeks. Most meetings take place at the QUIC. Space is limited and subject to availability.
