Would you like to volunteer with international students this spring semester? Be a Conversation Partner through the English Language Institute (ELI) at UF. The program is designed to help ELI students practice English in a friendly setting while meeting Americans and making friends. Volunteers spend one hour each week speaking with their partner at a time and location of their mutual choosing. There are also weekly Monday Mixers where Conversation Partners and students can meet and speak informally, and there are opportunities to volunteer in ELI classes.
