The LRC is hosting conversation hours in many languages, some in collaboration with the Language House. These are led by speakers of the language and are times to use a language you are learning, outside of class. They are open to any learner, but probably most useful to those at an intermediate level or above. It’s a time to have fun listening and speaking in a language you are learning. Just using your new language skills helps you learn more than you might think, without instruction or correction. You learn what you don’t know how to say, preparing yourself to learn new expressions. You build your collection of connected words in your head that help you use the language more easily. You gain confidence through experience. 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. Come to G4 during the day, or write to the LRC Director, Angelika Kraemer at <AKraemer@cornell.edu> to get started.
