By having an American friendship partner, you can have a deeper cultural experience with a native English speaker while you are in the United States. You will be matched with an individual or family in the Champaign-Urbana area with whom you can visit, enjoy an occasional meal, celebrate holidays, participate in community events, or just relax in conversation. This is an opportunity for you to experience American life in a non-university setting and to learn firsthand about culture in the United States.
Note: This program is available to university students in the Champaign-Urbana area only. WE DO NOT OFFER EMAIL PARTNERSHIPS.
