Center for Language Studies

Open Hours

Join us every Monday on the 6th floor of the SciLi at 6pm for a peer-facilitated language hour. Meet people who speak the language you are learning.

Learn cool new words, listen to the latest music or watch a really fun commercial. You can even jump from one language table to another! We are always looking for more facilitators for any number of languages.
