Language Exchange

Join our group of local members of the community in fun bilingual and cultural conversations. 

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.
