College of Arts & LettersConversation Partner Program

The ELC matches international students and Americans so they can practice each other's native language or learn about each other's culture in informal settings. Participants in the program meet with their Conversation Partner for at one hour each week at a time and place that is convenient to both students.

  • Would you like to get to know one of our students from Asia, the Middle East, Europe, South America, or Africa?
  • Would you like to brush up on your Japanese, Chinese, or Arabic?
  • Would you like to practice speaking English with an American or fluent speaker?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then sign up for the Conversation Partner Program at Old Dominion University.

For more information, call the English Language Center or send an email with "Conversation Partner" in the subject line to the ELC, ELC@odu.edu.
