IEP Conversation Partners

The AEI's Tutoring and Conversation Partner Program offers full-time IEP students weekly conversation partner sessions with a UO student. Conversation partners are English speakers who can help you practice your language skills outside of the classroom and learn more about culture at the UO and in the U.S.

Research indicates that conversation partners help accelerate language gains and cultural adjustment to life on campus and in our community. Active, motivated learners equal high achievers. If you have questions, concerns, or ideas about the program, please stop by the tutoring office.
