Would you be interested in establishing lasting friendships with Japanese students that are interested in learning about Canada? GPI North America is currently recruiting Conversation Buddies for our on-line programs.  This is a volunteer position for high school/secondary students.

Conversation Buddies take part in English lessons and other activities, and developing strategies towards communicating effectively with Japanese students in English is an important part of each participant’s role.

Conversation Buddies must have their own computer and have experience with the Zoom platform.
