ESOL Conversation Program - This program aims to assist both international students and community members who wish to improve their English conversation skills in a small group and/or one-on-one setting. Participants engage in conversations focused on cultures, current events and other topics of interest. Through interactive and authentic discussions, the ESOL participants improve their English fluency, pronunciation, and have a better understanding of common English usage while the volunteers garner experience in teaching and working with diverse student population.
Many colleges or departments offer courses with a substantial service-
learning component. Contact your academic advisor for more information.
