|English Conversation Club|| club || The English Conversation Club promotes international friendships. A native English speaker is paired with 2-3 non-native speakers for a conversation group. The groups meet informally, perhaps on campus, outdoors, or for dinner, on a weekly basis. The atmosphere is intended to be informal and provides an outlet for international students to ask questions and practice their conversational English, while the native speaker has the opportunity to learn about different cultures. Large events are also held each semester, including coffee hours, dance parties, Desserts Around the World and mass meetings.
