winter iconWinter mid January-mid April
spring iconSpring late April-late July
At the beginning of each new semester, students enrolled in Pathway’s L version courses will select a speaking partner mentor that matches their availability. Mentors will receive an email asking them to accept the request. Once a mentor confirms, contact information is released to both parties, and the speaking partner learners and mentors can begin meeting each week.
