Conversation Partners Needed

Every semester, the program for international teaching assistants in the
Language Education Department seeks US undergraduates to serve as
conversation partners for international graduate students who are preparing
to become university teachers. Some of the international students have been
in the US for just a few months and appreciate help in becoming better
oriented to US and UGA life. But even internationals who have been here for
some time appreciate this opportunity for casual contact with US students.
Some internationals can spend three years at UGA and never have a chance
for an informal conversation with a US student! For the US conversation
partners the benefits lie in (1) learning more about another culture and
(2) contributing to the quality of instruction at UGA and (3) making new
friends. A few international teaching assistants are still in need of
conversation partners this current semester. Conversation partnering may
involve just informal chatting at the Bulldog Cafe at the Tate Center, or
it might evolve into more elaborate activities like bowling or shopping
together or even cooking a meal for your conversation partner (or vice
versa). If you are willing to commit at least three hours this semester to
serving as a conversation partner for an international student, please
contact Don Rubin at [log in to unmask] or Ann Neville Miller at [log in to unmask]
