Conversation Circles offered through the English Language Institute (ELI)

Are you looking for a way to be a part of the university’s global outreach? Take advantage of the opportunity to become a Conversation Circles Leader.

Conversation Circles is a program offered through the English Language Institute (ELI), designed to connect non-native and native English speakers in small groups for a weekly hour of cross-cultural conversations.

Leading a group is a great way to

— fulfill a community service requirement
— broaden your cross-cultural experience
— strengthen your resume
— explore language learning issues
— have some “no-homework” fun chilling out with a small group of international students at your favorite Ann Arbor hangout

To learn more about the program and sign up to be a leader, check out our website at

If you know anyone else who might be interested in being either a group leader or a group member, by all means pass the URL on to them. Undergraduates, graduate students and staff are all eligible.
Registration is open now! (The first wave of sign-ups will begin on September 15, so register your group soon!)

We will be holding an orientation session for first-time leaders on Monday, September 15, from 3:00 – 4:00 pm.
Please do RSVP either way, to Even if you can’t attend the orientation because of a schedule conflict, go ahead and register your circle at the link above, and we’ll work out an alternative.
