Language Partners

ELI provides students with the opportunity to have a language partner. Language partners are local volunteers that will meet with students once or more per week to practice conversational English.

Benefits of a language partner

Students will be able to:

  • build their confidence speaking English
  • make new acquaintances and friends
  • practice English in different scenarios/situations
  • meet with the language partner when convenient
  • get exposure to different accents
  • learn English in a more relaxed setting
  • improve listening skills

Students that are interested should fill out the Language Partner Student Application and email it to
