Making a new friend, one week at a time

MASSIE students are paired with Mount Allison students who volunteer their time as English conversation partners. Pairs meet a minimum of once a week for an hour at time for the duration of the program. There is no expectation for conversation partners to know or teach the formal elements of English grammar. Conversation is meant to be casual and the time spent together is intended to be fun. This is an opportunity for friendship, conversation and cross-cultural exchange.
