Flyer for SPEAK event

SPEAK is a free weekly conversation group hosted by English Language Services. The goal is to give you an opportunity to chat with international and domestic students, staff, and faculty. It is an excellent way to meet new people, learn something about different cultures, and practice your speaking skills. No fees, no homework, no grading, no stress–just sharing our opinions, ideas, and cultures.

Join us if you are looking for interesting discussions, cross-cultural friendships, fun, and free pizza! 

Each week, we engage you with conversation questions, speaking activities, and occasional games to give you a chance to try your hand at friendly (and fun!) competitions.

This semester (fall 2023) SPEAK will meet every THURSDAY from 12:50–1:40 p.m. from September 7–November 16 (no SPEAK on October 12).

All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend.

To enjoy free pizza, please register weekly (by 1 p.m. each Wednesday). Did not register in time? Feel free to still join us, but bring your lunch just in case!
