Conversation Partner Program

The AEM (ESL) Program matches non-native English speakers with a native English speaker from the USF community. Conversation partners meet regularly throughout the semester, approximately once a week, and talk about anything they want. 

Registration for Spring 2014 is closed. 

The Conversation Partner Program offers AEM students and native English speakers the opportunity to learn about each other's countries and cultures. AEM students can practice their English communication skills and learn about U.S. culture and college life. Native speakers of English can learn about another country, another culture, and perhaps practice their foreign language skills.  

We provide conversation tips and new ideas for participants in the program.  Often students return with the same partners and form friendships and networks beyond the CPP. 


Spring Orientation will be held on Tuesday, February 18 at 11:45 a.m. in Cowell 107.
