Conversation Partner

Make A Cross-Cultural Connection!

This week, the American Language & Culture Institute (ALCI) welcomes a new group of international students from around the globe to CSU, Chico. These students will be participating in a program of intensive English language instruction, and a variety of social and cultural activities. If you’d like to make a cross-cultural connection, sign up to be a Conversation Partner! ALCI’s Conversation Partners program pairs international students with American students and members of our University community. Partners meet weekly to chat in informal situations, allowing ALCI students to improve their English and learn about American society. In return, you have the chance to learn about a new culture and make international friendships. If you are interested in becoming a Conversation Partner, you can sign up using our online form. If you have any questions, please email Whitney at or call the ALCI office at 530-898-6821.
