(Aug. 26, 2008)--English as a Second Language (ESL) Services hosts the Conversation Partner Program, which pairs native English speakers with international students to help them practice their English. The native English speakers also have the opportunity to meet people from different parts of the world.

Native speakers can be UTSA faculty and staff, along with students from UTSA and outside the university. Conversation partners are arranged for a semester and meet one hour per week at times and places of their convenience. Partners can choose such venues as meeting at a coffee shop, taking a walk at a park or going to a movie.
