Welcome to English Connections!  We are a volunteer network dedicated to serving the international student and scholar community of New York City.  We provide a number of volunteer-based programs designed to help international students gain confidence in English, meet new friends, learn about American culture, and adjust to the NYC environment.

Register here to join an English Conversation group.  Meet new friends and practice speaking English with a native speaker!

English Connections values integrity. We are a network of Protestant Christian volunteers. The organization of this network is a ministry of International Students, Inc. NYC Staff.  Each volunteer signs an ethical statement and will conduct the group in a friendly and professional manner. Group content will always match our advertisements. Students of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome in our groups.
