Language Conversation Partners

CTL provides free language conversation practice with peers who are specially trained to help you develop the skills you need to be successful in your classes. Language Conversation Partners (LCPs) are here to help you improve your speaking skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

The Language Conversation program is designed to help you meet the oral proficiency objectives of your language course, so you must be enrolled in a course at the Stanford Language Center to use the LCPs.

LCPs will:

  • Role-play different speaking scenarios
  • Practice oral drills and activities from your textbook
  • Boost your conversational confidence in your target language
  • Lead unstructured conversations in the language you are studying
