Be a Conversation Partner

We hope you are having a great start to your semester.  We would like to remind you of NHTI—Concord’s Community College Conversation Partners, a program started in 2009 and developed to help students from different cultural backgrounds meet and engage in a one-on-one conversation on campus at through the Office of Cross-cultural Education & ESOL.  We have several professors in the Dental, Human Service, Social Science, Education and English departments whom have incorporated this cross-cultural activity in their courses.  We are always looking for more participation, so please check out the Conversation Partners Handbook on our website for more details about how it works. If you have questions about including this wonderful program, we would be glad to answer them. Contact one of us at:
