Conversation Circles

The Conversation Circles program is open to all WMU students. It was designed to help CELCIS students make connections with other students and to practice conversational English. For WMU students, it is a great way to learn about different cultures. For everyone, it's a great way to meet new people and have fun. Participants are put into groups of five or more people. The group meets at least once a week to chat in English about various topics. The conversation can be about campus life, culture, food, or anything else you find interesting. Groups meet during the spring, summer and fall semesters. Meetings are held in public places on campus. If you are interested, contact the CELCIS Director, at
