Conversation Friend Information

The Conversation Friend Program matches international students, scholars or spouses with a local FFIS volunteer for one-on-one English conversation. Conversation Friends meet for one hour each week for English conversation and practice. Volunteers are all members of the community; many of them are retirees with valuable life experience that they want to share with you. Participants will be matched with volunteers of the same gender.

This program is available to all international students, scholars, and their spouses.

The Conversation Friend Application is open from September 1 through February 1 every year. Matching will begin in October.
