English Pal Program
English Pal is an English conversation program run by the Golden Key International Honour Society and the International Student Organization at Stony Brook University. English Pal program first started in 2011 and has been a great success since. English Pal gives international students an opportunity to practice conversational English in a casual setting with an English speaker. At the same time, domestic students can meet and learn from people of different cultures and languages.
The expected duration of the program is approximately 10-12 weeks.
Pals will meet at a minimum for 30 minutes once every week. Pals can meet longer as they wish. The application for English Pal will be out at the beginning of each semester, English Pal usually recruits participants during the first two weeks of the semester. There will be a mandatory information session (Meet-n-Greet Social) to discuss the details of the program before it starts.
