About the Conversation Network

Students Talking

The Conversation Network is a unique opportunity for language and cultural exchange. It provides a forum for Drexel students and community members to interact with English Language Center (ELC) students as conversation partners. Conversation partners are expected to meet for about 1 hour each week during the current term. Being a conversation partner has many benefits. Native English speakers can help ELC students practice English, while the ELC students can help native English speakers learn a second language. Partners can also learn about each other’s countries and customs. You can find a partner whose interests match your own and make a new friend.

How can I Sign Up for The Conversation Network?

Please send an email to Please include which language is your native language and which language you would like to practice.

What happens after I Sign Up for The Conversation Network?

If we find a partner for you, we will send you an email. Please check your Drexel email account daily. It will be up to you and your partner to decide the rules: when and where to meet; when to speak in one language and when to speak in the other; whether you only want to practice language or want to do other things too, like go to the movies, cook, play games, etc.
