Conversation Partners Needed for International Students

Professor Don Rubin is seeking US undergraduate students to serve as
conversation partners for international graduate students to improve their
oral English.  International students often come to UGA with very good
preparation in written English, but with much less experience in speaking
and listening, especially in informal settings.  It is not uncommon for
international graduate students to spend 3 years in Athens without ever
cultivating any extended casual relationship with a North American.  It is
all to easy for international students to become isolated, using English
only in the classroom and in limited public contact.  In addition, it is
important for international students who wish to teach at UGA or other US
institutions to learn something about the culture of US undergraduate
students, about their expectations for their university experience, and
about their instructional needs.  This is the kind of information which we
hope our US conversation partners will share. Students who volunteer as
conversation partners should be willing to commit to a minimum of three
one-hour meetings prior to midterm and three meetings after midterm.  To
volunteer, or for further information, please contact Ann Miller
([log in to unmask]) or Don Rubin ([log in to unmask]), coordinators of this
conversation partner program.

Students who Studied Abroad or Want to Study Abroad in Germany Needed for
Study

DAAD, together with the Institute of International Education, British
Council, Australian Education Office and the US Department of State has
contracted with JWT Education to conduct a study on the market for overseas
education in the US.  The study aims to determine:
--the degree to which US students perceive US employer acceptance of an
international degree as a barrier to pursuing higher education overseas;
--the extent to which US students perceive there to be any value in having
undertaken some of their study overseas;
--the degree to which an international degree or a component of someone's
degree undertaken overseas impacts US employers' decision to hire a candidate;
--the key barriers to undertaking study overseas.
If you are willing to participate and either studied in Germany or are
looking into studying in Germany, please contact: Christopher Fredericks,
