The Conversation Circles program offers international students opportunities to practice spoken English, learn more about UIndy, meet other English speakers, and feel more confident and fluent about using English for social and academic situations while in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. English-speaking volunteer tutors lead small groups for weekly hour-long conversations with emphasis on communication (including slang and idioms) and cultural exchange. Conversation Circles offer a chance to meet interesting people from around the world, gain intercultural experience, explore language-learning, laugh, and practice English. Read more here.
