    Conversation Partners Wanted for International Students

    September 16, 2019

    Are you a native English speaker looking to learn about different cultures and make new friendships? You may be the perfect fit for our Conversation Partners Program.

    Conversation Partners will play a crucial role in helping our international students feel welcomed and embraced by the University of Scranton community. Through one-on-one meetings, Partners will help their international partner practice speaking and listening to fluent English.

    During these sessions, partners may discuss such topics as:
    American customs
    American academic culture
    Current events
    The University of Scranton culture and mission

    Through practice of the target language (English), the English Language Learner will gain confidence in their English-speaking ability. This confidence will translate to better participation in the classroom and stronger interaction with the University of Scranton community.

    To apply, you must be in good standing and have earned a 3.0 GPA or higher.

    If you are interested, please email amye.archer@scranton.edu for more information and a brief application.
