Language Partners

LPP pairs one native English speaker with one non-native English speaker. The pairs get together once a week for a minimum of one hour and practice conversational English. The program is a great opportunity to learn about another culture and make a new friend. The focus of the program is to assist the non-native English speaker with their conversational English, awareness of North American culture and knowledge of living in Columbia, MO.

If you are interested in a language partner, please complete the form below.

The pairings are on a first come, first serve basis and we will email you as soon as we have a partner for you. Please note this may take up to a few weeks based on our volunteer pool.

Once you are paired, our program Coordinator will send an email to you and your partner with each other’s contact information.
