Conversation Partner Program

Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program provides new international students with the opportunity to meet weekly with fluent English speakers one-on-one or in a small group.

As a conversation partner volunteer, you will be matched with an international student, meeting them once or twice a week for about one hour at a mutually convenient time and place in order to talk, listen and learn about another culture.

For international students, this is a wonderful opportunity to practice your speaking and listening skills with Canadian students and share your culture.

ATTENTION: For the Spring 2020 semester, please contact Deneice Falconer, Coversation Partner Program Facilitator, if you are interested in the Conversation Partner Program. 

ATTENTION: For the Fall 2020 semester, we will be partnering with the Internationalization Office’s MUN Mentors Program. For more information on this program and how ESL students can apply to become a mentee, please visit:
