Conversation Partnership Program

UCSD students or UCSD employees who are interested in helping UC San Diego Extension international students with English conversational skills in exchange for another language can volunteer as a Conversation Partner in the Conversation Partner Program through UC San Diego Extension.

The Conversation Partners Program List is a list of UCSD students and employees who would like to help UCSD Extension International Programs (IP) students with English conversation, usually in exchange for practice with another language (i.e. if you are trying to learn Japanese you could pair up with a Japanese student and practice English half of the time and Japanese the other half) and/or you can just offer to help students with English. This is a great way to improve your foreign language conversation skills and learn about other cultures.

Conversation Partners should have a fluent understanding and proficient use of the English language, including the ability to speak without a heavy accent, write accurately in regards to grammar, and have in-depth knowledge and understanding of English language idioms, slang, and American culture.  Conversation Partners should also be easily understood by low-level English proficiency students.

Language Tables

The Language Tables are one of International House's most popular programs. Each quarter a variety of language tables are hosted and attended by students, staff, faculty, and anyone from the public willing to join. Language Tables provide the chance to teach and learn a language in a natural environment.

For the Language Table schedule, please visit the International House.
