Conversation partners & tutoring

About the Conversation Partners program

Conversation partners are student volunteers fluent in the world languages taught at UWL. Each week, GCL students meet with a conversation partner to spend 15-minutes discussing topics and themes directly related to their course's learning objectives. 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.

Interested in becoming a conversation partner?

If you are interested in becoming a conversation partner this fall, please complete this short survey.

Conversation partners must be nominated by GCL faculty. Please reach out to a current or past instructor who can attest to your ability to serve as a conversation partner. They can then forward their recommendation to the LRC director.
