Conversation partners & tutoring

About the Conversation Partners program

Conversation partners are student volunteers fluent in the world languages taught at UWL. Each week, 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.
