    Group/Activity Description:

     

    Did you know that English Language Learners (ELLs) spend less than 5% of their day speaking English? - English Conversation Pairs is a program in which native English-speaking students are paired with students who have English as a second (or sometimes third or fourth!) language for conversational practice. The purpose of the program is three-fold: it is to give non-native English speakers more opportunities to converse in English outside the classroom, it is to provide non-native English speakers with fellow students whom they can ask about U.S. culture and social language, and thirdly, it is to benefit the native English-speaking students by providing them with opportunities to get to know students from rich cultural backgrounds whom they might not get to know otherwise
