Conversational English Circles is an activity sponsored by the NDSU English Club.  Members of the English Club (mostly undergraduate English and English Education majors) invite international students to participate in informal conversations on a weekly basis. International students have an opportunity to improve their conversational English skills and to learn more about American culture.  American students develop an improved sense of idiomatic English, and they also learn about other countries and cultures. All meetings are held on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. Everyone is invited to participate.
