Conversation Circles

Interested in practicing informal English with native speakers of English, catching up on current English idioms and slang, making new friends and having fun? Then ELI's Conversation Circles program is for you!

Conversation Circles are weekly, one-hour meetings led by volunteer facilitators who are currently students faculty, or staff at the University of Michigan. Many Conversation Circles are offered at all times throughout the week, including weekends. Each Circle is limited to a maximum of six members, so participants have many opportunities to practice English and learn about U.S. culture.
