Volunteer Conversation Partners Needed

UConn’s American English Language Institute (UCAELI) seeks volunteers to be conversation partners for the summer.

UCAELI students come from all over the world to study English.  As part of their coursework, they participate in conversation classes with volunteers from the UConn community.  It’s a rewarding experience for all involved, as students get the chance to practice their conversation skills in an informal situation, while volunteers get to meet interesting new people and gain cross-cultural perspectives.  UCAELI instructors will provide a topic for discussion or an activity and remain in the class to facilitate.  No advanced preparation is necessary, just an eagerness to converse and collaborate!

You can find out more information on our website here – https://ucaeli.uconn.edu/getting-involved-volunteering/

Conversation Classes will take place on Fridays from 11-12.The dates of our summer program classes are July 8 – August 9.

If you would like to volunteer you can email register-ucaeli@uconn.edu

For more information, contact: Alexandra Schipani at register-ucaeli@uconn.edu
