AEC Conversation Groups

  • Conversation groups are your chance to practice your English outside of the classroom.
  • All AEC students are welcome!
  • You don't need to sign up, come whenever you like.
  • We meet just to talk.
  • There is no homework or teacher. The leaders are students just like you.
  •  We meet on the first floor of the Kansas Union.
  •  We meet Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Remember to check your KU email for information about conversation groups and activities.
