International Student Services

Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program (CPP) is an Edmonds CC program dedicated to connecting students through culture sharing to create a more international campus. We will be placing students into partnerships or groups made up of students from different cultures throughout each quarter. Each partnership/group commits to meeting one hour each week for all of the quarter. CPP is not a tutoring program, but a way for people to learn about culture and practice communication skills. Partnership with a specific nationality or language speaker cannot be guaranteed, but we will do our best to make compatible partnerships.

The application for Spring Quarter is now open. Please apply by Friday, April 13 at 5 p.m. PST. 

*Please note that not every partner includes a native English speaking person.*
