Conversation Partners - Volunteers
Are you interested in learning about different cultures, while at the same time helping someone practice the English conversation skills? If so, this is the right program for you!
Conversation Partners are native English-speaking Brock University student volunteers who are matched with Brock students learning and studying English. The partners meet for one hour per week and converse. There is no set schedule that you need to follow, as you and your partner will decide when and where you’d like to meet.
The people seeking partners are students who have come to St. Catharines from all over the world. They study in a classroom setting all day long, but what they’d really like to practice is conversational English with native English speakers.
Inevitably you will gain a friend, as well as a better understanding of a culture other than your own. You will also develop interpersonal skills that will help you in the future.
If you are interested in volunteering as a conversation partner during the Fall and Winter terms, please use our Conversation Partner Volunteer sign up form.
Don't forget to sign up for Career Services Experience Plus program as well! All hours volunteered for this program can be tracked and recorded on your Experience Plus record.
*Please note that not every Conversation Partner Volunteer is guaranteed a partner. The number of pairings will depend on the number of students that sign up.
