ALI Conversation Groups

Wednesday, February 19 at 10:00am to 5:00pm

More dates through April 24, 2020

Ronald Tutor Campus Center (TCC), 221

Conversation Groups (provided by USC's American Language Institute) aims at promoting English conversation between USC’s international and native English-speaking populations. This FREE resource is an excellent way for international students to supplement their studies; it provides a venue in which they can practice their growing English skills with a native English-speaking USC student in a casual environment. Past participants have reported an improvement in their English speaking fluency, a comfort in interacting with English native speakers, and a higher level of confidence in the English language.

Meetings are generally held at TCC 221 and are 50 minutes long. Sessions times are 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm. All sessions are run on a “first come, first-served” basis so students are encouraged to arrive on time, if not early! “First come, first served” means that students do not need to register or sign up in advance; they just simply come to the session that they want to attend and the leader will take the first five students that arrive. Students may attend as many sessions as they wish; there is no limit to the amount of sessions a student may attend. Students may attend back-to-back sessions but only if the second session does not have five new students in attendance.

Please note, the program is open to all international students; however, in the event of overflow, priority will be given to current ALI students.

Our Spring 2020 Conversation Groups will begin Jan. 27th and will run until April 24th.  Please check for more information on session times, leaders, and location changes.
