CIE Language Exchange
Bonjour U of T! Te gusta estudiar lenguas? The Centre for International Experience coordinates a Language Exchange for all U of T students (at St. George Campus). If you are studying a language, or just have a general interest in languages, we welcome you!
When and where
The CIE Language Exchange Program will take place during the fall and winter terms. The Language Exchange Program will not be held during the 2018 Summer Term. Please check back here in August for information regarding the 2018 Fall Term.
Program participants are expected to maintain contact with their program partner/partners and meet regularly when possible (approximately 90 minutes on a weekly basis and at mutually agreed upon times).
A room may be available at CIE, 33 St. George St. on either Tuesdays or Thursdays during the fall and winter terms. Participants have the option to independently arrange to meet with their partners at other times or locations. More information and instructions will be available after applications are reviewed and matches are made.
How it works
1. Complete and submit your online application to provide information about yourself for the matching process.
2. Based on your responses, we will try our best to match you with another student who has knowledge of the language that you want to learn.
Please note: The availability of languages is based on the pool of applicants and we may not be able to match students in all cases. If there is no one-on-one match, activities may be in small groups.
3. Students who are matched will receive notification by email along with information and a guide (containing a variety of sample activities) that can be used for the language exchange meetings.
Please note: If you submit an application for the Language Exchange Program during the application period and do not receive an email, then we are unfortunately unable to match you with a language exchange partner. This could be due to a variety of factors including a small pool of applicants and a limited number of languages offered. We encourage you to apply again for the next available term.
