By having an in-person English Conversation Partner (ECP), you can have a deeper cultural experience with a native English speaker while you are in the United States. You will be matched with an individual in the Columbus area with whom you can talk, ask questions, and if able to meet in-person walk in the park, enjoy an occasional meal, celebrate holidays, and participate in community events.
In-Person English Conversation Partners meet regularly to maintain a close friendship and connection. This is a perfect way to see more of Columbus with a native and make a friend!
