Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey

Current MIIS graduate students pair up with ESL students to support language and culture sharing.

Please note that the format of the Conversation Partner program has changed.

As of 2015, the English Conversation Partner program will pair MIIS ESL students with MIIS graduate students, and English will be the language spoken by the pair.

The goal is to encourage ESL students to develop their conversation skills and to introduce graduate students to new cultures. We regret that we can no longer offer this program as a service to the greater community and thank you for your understanding.

Current MIIS students who are interested in participating in this program should complete an application form. Please contact us if you have any questions.
