Conversation Partners Program

students in conversationConversation Partners (CPP) is a FUN, FREE program open to all international and native English-speaking students, faculty, and staff at KSU. At the start of each fall and spring semester, international participants are paired with native English-speaking partners in a mutual exchange of languages, cultures, and friendship. Partners are asked to meet at least six times during the semester at places and times of their choosing. 

The CPP welcomes hundreds of participants each fall and spring semester, and these participants represent dozens of countries from every region of the world.

Chris Beam, a KSU staff member whose experience in the CPP reflects the experiences of many participants in the program, says:

"I have truly enjoyed this experience and know that I have made life-long friends. I have recommended this program to others and would recommend it to anyone. The students are very much interested in sharing and learning, and seem very enthusiastic about this program. Thank you for offering this program to the students and staff/faculty at KSU!"
