Health and Wellbeing - *ONLINE PROGRAM* University of Hyogo Conversation Partners Program - Semester 2 2022

The University of Hyogo is a public university in Japan with study abroad links with Curtin University. This program, managed by the University of Hyogo (UH), aims to pair students from the University of Hyogo who wish to learn/improve their English whilst also providing an opportunity for Curtin student volunteers to improve their Japanese and learn about the Japanese culture. The ratio of English to Japanese conversation is something you will negotiate with the student you are paired with.

Time and day: You will decide on a mutually convenient time to connect with your UH partner each week. We recommend that contact should be made weekly for a minimum of one hour.
