Bonjour U of T! Te gusta estudiar lenguas? If you are studying a language, or just have a general interest in languages, the Language Exchanges program welcomes you! This is your chance to practice or learn the basics of a new language, while helping other students do the same in regular weekly meetings!
Simply let us know what language(s) you would like to learn and what language(s) you can share with the Language Exchange community. You will then become a member of two groups: your target language-learning group and your language-of-strength group. At each meeting you’ll begin in one of your identified language groups and then switch to your second identified language group at the halfway point. We’ll provide engaging activities and discussion topics to help facilitate conversations.
Please note: Language Exchange will meet in a combination of virtual and in-person sessions for summer 2022. More info to come.
Please complete the online registration form by May 11.
