The Conversation Groups Program has been an American Language Institute standard for more than 10 years. It aims at promoting English conversation between USC's international and native English-speaking populations. This FREE resource is an excellent way for international students to supplement their studies; it provides a venue in which they can practice their growing English skills in a casual and non-obtrustive environment. Past students have reported an improvement in their English speaking fluency, a comfort in interacting with English native speakers, and a higher level of confidence in the English language. Meetings are held at THH 316 and are 50 minutes long. All sessions are run on a first-come-first-serve basis (capped at 5) so please arrive on time, if not early!
Please note, the program is open to all international students; however, in the event of overflow, priority will be given to current ALI students.
Conversation Groups will return September 9th, 2013 and will run until November 26th, 2013. Check Schedule page for further information.
