Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program is a free program available to all Seattle Central students, including those enrolled in the Seattle Central Institute of English (SCIE), during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. It is a great opportunity to get an excellent language exchange with native English speakers.

The Conversation Partner Program matches international students with other students on campus or community volunteers for informal language and cultural exchanges. Conversation partners usually meet about one hour a week for one quarter. Partners are matched by the Global Engagement Team (GET). The staff is available for questions and guidance for the Conversation Partners.

For more information or to sign up, stop by the GET Office, call (206) 934-3109, or email
