Conversation Culture Partners at UMaine

Would you like to help a student improve their English?

Make a difference in the life of an English as a Second Language (ESL) student. Increase your understanding of global issues. Gain practice and positive experience that showcase your communication, English and/or counseling skills. Volunteer as an Intensive English Institute Conversation Partner.

Pairs meet at least once per week for one hour.  You choose the time and place to be convenient for both of you.  Training is provided so you know how to provide the best experience for your ESL learner.

This program is now coordinated by the Intensive English Institute.  Visit the Intensive English Institute webpage for an on-line or paper application or contact Zhen Zhang for more information.
