Everyone is welcome to join Let’s Talk: ELL Conversation Partners. This program is designed for people who speak English but would like to practice speaking and listening. Native English speaker volunteers are invited to join us for conversation and friendship! Partners meet for about one hour and are led by a facilitator. The program is informal, fun, and free! No experience necessary.
