Language Exchange Program


The Language Exchange Program is designed to help break down language barriers and build cultural understanding in our Jackson Hole community, as well as give our ESL students additional opportunities to practice their English skills off-campus with native speakers.

Language Exchange Partners
An ESL student will be paired up with native English speakers from the Jackson Hole community to practice English outside of class, while teaching the other partner his or her native language. Pairs will go through a 1-hour training and then arrange their own meetings in the future – a chat over coffee, making a meal together, going for a hike, or skiing together. The experience is up to the pair.
We ask for a 3-month commitment and suggest that partners meet for 1-2 hours a week. To request a language exchange partner, fill out the application and email it back to the Jackson ESL Office. Also, check this list of website links to help facilitate your meetings with your future partner, as well as some self-study suggestions:
