What is a Conversation Pal?  

A conversation pal is an American student who is about the same age as the participant. The conversation pal will work with the tutor to provide conversation practice sessions in everyday situations. They may visit a mall and go on a scavenger hunt , visit a restaurant and order a meal, prepare a meal at home in the kitchen, play a game that requires conversation,  discuss political, educational, scientific or other topics depending upon areas of interest and conversation levels. The conversation pal is there to be a friend and help the participant improve his English conversation skills!
