Be an IEP Conversation Partner
Intensive English Program (IEP) Conversation Partner Program
The IEP Conversation Partner program provides Wilkes University students, faculty and staff the opportunity to get to know someone from another country and learn about another culture. It also gives Wilkes University international students in the intensive English Program (IEP) a chance to practice their English and learn about American culture.
The conversation partners determine the time and location of their meetings. Students are expected to meet in public places (anywhere on campus or in Wilkes-Barre), visit cultural events (concerts, plays, exhibitions), go to a sporting event, etc.
Some suggested activities include:
- Meeting for coffee;
- Eating lunch together on campus;
- Asking your partner to teach you to cook some of his/her native food;
- Inviting your partner to join you and your friends for an activity;
- Going to a Wilkes sporting event.
