Conversation Partners

Resources for Students     Conversation Partners Program   Resources for Faculty Links to Community Resources

The Language and Literacy Center's Conversation Partners program matches MCC students who are English language learners with members of the MCC community (students, staff and faculty) for one-on-one, informal conversation in English. Partners meet for about 30 minutes once a week for one quarter.

The Conversation Partners program:

  • Promotes and encourages cross-cultural awareness and understanding
  • Provides English learners with a personal connection on campus
  • Gives English learners an opportunity to build their confidence in speaking

                If your primary language is English and you would like to be partnered with a student who is developing English language skills, fill out this form.
               If you are an English learner who would like to practice English language conversational skills with a fluent English speaker, fill out this form.

We will contact you by email when you are matched with a partner and provide you with guidelines and ideas for your conversations.
