Need to Improve Your Spoken English? English Conversation Partners Still Has Openings for Participants in Any Location!

English Conversation Partners is starting back up! 

What is ECP?
English Conversation Partners connects our international and domestic community at UMD one conversation at a time! Participants and facilitators meet up virtually once a week to discuss topics ranging from US culture to holidays to food to travel to politics, the list goes on! Personally, I always love to discuss the American Dream and compare it with other cultures' dreams. 

Facilitators lead the conversation by introducing the topic to be discussed and participants bring their wealth of experience, knowledge, and personality to enrich the discussion. No experience is needed! All students, scholars, staff, faculty, and spouses may join!

This is a great opportunity to increase cross-cultural communication skills, learn facilitation skills, make new friends, increase confidence speaking in groups, and always, have fun. 

Live Orientations have already taken place, however, English language learners can still sign up!
