Let’s Chat Series

Arizona State University is committed to the success of our international students by providing a variety of student success resources.

Let's Chat Series is designed to help engage and assist ASU’s international students. We host fun and interactive weekly workshops and offer free tutoring for English-related questions. Brought to you through a collaboration between International Students and Scholars Center (ISSC) and Global Launch, Let's Chat Series gives students a chance to make new friends, practice their English skills, and learn in a new way.

All Let’s Chat Series Workshops and Leadership Workshops will be held in the Student Services Building Amphitheater.
