Center for International Education
What: Conversation Partners is a unique and exciting new opportunity to experience the world here at ACU. Interested international students are paired up one-on-one with native English speakers (females with females, males with males) for English practice, conversation, and cultural learning. Partners meet for one hour each week at a time and place determined by the partners. This opportunity allows international students to improve their English and expand their understanding of American culture. At the same time, American students benefit by developing greater cultural awareness and understanding as well as gaining incredible friendships!

Please Note: Due to the volume and breadth of opportunities we post, Ministry & Service cannot screen off-campus host sites, their work environment, or the content of the activities offered. Therefore, before volunteering off-campus, it is essential for each student to (1) evaluate whether his or her goals can be achieved through the experience; (2) assess his or her mental, physical, and academic readiness for the opportunity; (3) research the safety of the environment and activity; and (4) assume all risk involved with the opportunity.
