Become a conversation partner

Conversation Partner

The Office of International Education looks for volunteers who would be interested in becoming conversation partners for international students every summer.  

For the International Summer Program, we welcome students from all over the world  to prepare them for a successful college career, and one of our goals is to give as many opportunities as possible to improve their English. We believe a casual conversation with a native speaker has a huge impact on students' learning.  

We usually have approximately 25 international students at ESU during the summer (late June to early August). Each volunteer will be expected to meet with their international student every week for an hour.  

Students, staff, and community members are all welcome to volunteer. 

If you would like to sign up, please email at oisa@emporia.edu or call 620-341-5374.
