Campus Activities - Conversation Partners
Conversation Partners is a program where international students are paired with U.S. WIU students for conversational purposes. Conversation Partners are expected to commit to meeting at least once a week for the duration of the semester.
Conversation Partners represents a wonderful cross-cultural sharing opportunity with mutual benefits and gives both U.S. and International students an opportunity to celebrate their differences. It give participants a chance to expand their horizons, or sometimes even a chance to travel to other countries. It is a great opportunity to help students from around the world learn more about American culture, customs and lifestyle.
