    Foreign Language Salons

What to expect at Language Salons

These Salons are a great place to meetup with other students and a diverse group of special guests to build your skills in your target language through discussion. Topics vary from every-day-life to academia to moral controversy. No need to prepare anything but a notebook if you feel like it. Grab a hot or cold beverage and a light snack. Let's learn together under slightly more relaxed circumstances.


Times and dates will vary according to interest. Please be kind to our teachers and special guests. Some are not in the US and may have to be up at odd hours to help us all have a good time.
