Conversation Hours

The LRC hosts conversation hours in many languages, some in collaboration with the language departments. 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. 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 have fun! 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 cornelllrc@cornell.edu to get started. Conversation Hours are open to the public. Campus visitors and members of the public must adhere to Cornell's public health requirements for events.

We also have a variety of board games available for checkout (for a complete list of games, check our LRC library holdings)!
