“The English Conversation Partners project has been a spectacular opportunity, not just to bridge between cultures and continents but also generations. The opportunity to share our stories with and learn from students about themselves, their homes, their families, and how they are dealing with the present crisis has been personally rewarding.”

Michael Olin, who was paired with a student in the Czech Republic.

Volunteer as a conversation partner with English language learners around the world! Give your partner the chance to practice their English skills with a native speaker. This is a great opportunity to help the students grow in their confidence. You also get to support the work our missionaries are doing!

The next round of English Conversation Partners is March 16 – April 20, 2023. Note: there will not be class on April 6th, Maundy Thursday.

This spring, there will be just one class, in Puerto Rico. They will meet Thursdays, 6-7pm, Central Time.

Volunteer requirements:

  1. Serve one hour/week, for six weeks.
  2. Be a native English speaker.
  3. Have a video-based conversation with English language learners.
  4. Follow the instructions given by your host missionary.

Please note: It is very important that your internet can support having a live video conversation because the classes will take place on Zoom. You’ll need a webcam and access to broadband internet.
