You are here
The LRC hosts conversation hours in many languages, some in collaboration with the Language House. These are led by speakers of the target language and offer an opportunity to use a language you are learning, outside of class, in an informal, low-pressure atmosphere. They are open to any learner, but are probably most useful to those at an intermediate level or above. Have fun listening to and speaking in a language you are learning! Gain confidence through experience! Just using your new language skills helps you learn more than you might think, without instruction or correction. Come to Conversation Hour in your language and enjoy! If you are learning a language we don’t have a conversation hour in, find a group of learners and we’ll help set it up. See us in G04 Stimson Hall during the day or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
We also have a variety of board games available for checkout (for a complete list of games, check our online library)!
