Thank you for your interest in our program! EIA is a volunteer effort sponsored by YWCA Berkeley/Oakland. We pair English speakers with with UC Berkeley students, visiting scholars and their partners, students from adult school and local community colleges, as well as community members, who seek to improve competency in the English language. There is no formal English instruction--just casual conversation.
