HAYS, Kan. -- Opportunities for international students to practice listening and speaking English, games and fellowship are all a part of Conversation Corner, sponsored by Fort Hays State University's Department of Communication Disorders from 7 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays in Chuck's Place in Wiest Hall on the FHSU campus.

The conversations begin Sept. 20 and end Dec. 6.

"The Conversation Corner is a weekly group that offers an opportunity for international students and students majoring in speech-language pathology to spend time in conversation and interaction," said Marla Staab, clinical coordinator in the Department of Communication Disorders. "Most students come back each week and bring friends. We have a good time and learn so much from each other."

Each evening is spent getting to know each other, sharing information about different cultures, playing interactive games, learning common expressions used in the United States, suggesting improvements in pronunciation and answering questions about Hays, the community and holidays, along with many other topics.

For more information, contact Staab at or 785-628-4450.
