Conversation Groups

In addition to writing tutoring, the Writing and Languages program also offers language conversation groups. These weekly conversation groups target the most popular languages offered at UNM and are ideal for gaining practice in speaking a language. Our language tutors make conversation groups fun by incorporating activities, movies, and games into the language learning process. All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in languages courses are welcomed! Conversation groups are available in person or online.
