The Intensive English Institute at the University of Maine is seeking volunteers to meet and talk with international students from throughout the world. International students at UMaine currently represent Brazil, Chile, China, India, France, Libya, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia, S. Korea, Thailand, Venezuela, among many other countries. Volunteer conversation partners spend one hour a week with an international student for casual conversation to help them practice speaking English. Contact Kris McClure at 581-3842, through FirstClass, or stop by the IEI offices in Hannibal Hamlin Hall for additional information. McClure says the program is a great way to volunteer and meet interesting new people from diverse cultures.
