Thank you for your interest in the Conversation Partners Program. The goal of this project is to connect speakers learning Chinese with speakers learning English. Ideally, you should make arrangements with your partner to meet once a week and speak together for approximately one hour, in both languages. This is not an opportunity for tutoring. This is a chance to share language. When you are meeting with your partner, try to resist correcting your partner or providing feedback. Your language skills will improve, and you will enjoy yourself more, if you allow the conversation to flow freely.
If you have questions about the Conversation Partners Program, please contact: Dr. Matthew Wells, Assistant Professor, Department of Chinese email@example.com Sarah Warfield, Lecturer, Center for ESL firstname.lastname@example.org
