Wilkes University


Conversation Partners

Looking to add some global experience to your resume?  The intensive English Program (IEP) at Wilkes has a conversation partner program.  It's an opportunity for Wilkes University students to volunteer one hour a week, and be paired with an international student.  The idea is to meet the international student once a week, for an hour, in the late afternoon or evening, or on the weekend, to do something fun and chat.   An additional advantage to participating in this program comes when employers, looking for new college graduates with global perspectives, or experience working with English as a Second Language (ESL) students, see something like this on a resume.  The IEP has 25 international students  in need of conversation partners.  If you're interested in volunteering one hour a week to help an international student experience some American culture, while learning about theirs, please e-mail Dr. Kimberly Niezgoda at kimberly.niezgoda@wilkes.edu
