Conversation partners & tutoring

About the Conversation Partners program

Conversation Partners are student volunteers fluent in the foreign languages taught at UWL. Each week, Conversation Partners meet with foreign language students and spend 15-minutes conversing in the target language about topics directly related to the cultural and linguistic components taught in class. The goal of the program is to develop students' speaking and listening skills through natural, two-way conversations with a peer.

Current languages offered as part of the Conversation Partners program include Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. 

If you are interested in becoming a Conversation Partner, please contact the director of the LRC, Dane DeVetter, by phone (608.785.8325) or by email (ddevetter@uwlax.edu).
