Do you want to practice your English with a native speaker? Do you want to make new friends from other cultures? If yes, then the Conversation Partner Program is for you!

The Conversation Partner Program provides language learners with opportunities to practice their English conversation skills with native English language speakers outside of the classroom. Small groups meet informally in the Johnson Building on the Arnold campus for one hour per week during the spring and fall semesters. The native English speakers are AACC students fulfilling service learning requirements while meeting students from around the world and broadening their knowledge of foreign cultures. ESL students are able to build communicative competence and fluency in addition to making new friends and learning about American culture.
