English Conversation Club

Our Three-Fold Mission

  • To help ELL students improve their spoken English and learn about U.S. culture.
  • To better integrate ELL students in the UVU community.
  • To assist American students in learning about foreign cultures and languages.

About Us

At the beginning of the semester, ELL students will be paired up with UVU student volunteers. They will meet once a week for an hour to practice skills in conversational English.

You can sign up at Club Rush held at the beginning of each semester, at the ELL Office in LA 209, or online in the form below.


Frequently Asked Questions

What's in it for me?

This is a great opportunity to meet people from all over the world! You can learn about different cultures while receiving the satisfaction of helping others! You can request a Certificate or a Letter of Participation after your service is complete.

Can I learn a second language?

Volunteers can request being paired with a partner who speaks a specific language. While it is not always possible to match every language, we do our best. Also, it is important that the ESL student gets to practice ENGLISH for an hour first, as it is part of their curriculum.

What do I do with my partner?

Just talk! This club is an opportunity for our students to practice conversational English since many speak their native tongue at home. Helping them with their assignments is also a beneficial activity.
