Conversation Partners Program - Being an ambassador of your own culture!

The Conversation Partners Program matches students, staff, and faculty members at College of Marin who are native speakers of English with international students for language and cultural exchange. During an entire semester partners meet weekly, biweekly, or monthly for about an hour to practice conversational English and/or another language. Typically, the time is divided equally to allow exchange in both languages.
