Bonjour U of T! Te gusta estudiar lenguas?
If you are studying a language, or just have a general interest in languages, the International Language Exchange 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!
Program EligibilityUndergraduate and graduate students who are studying language or have a general interest in language
How The Program Works
Let us know what language(s) you would like to learn and what language(s) you can share with the International Language Exchange community when you register.
You will 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 will provide activities and topics for each language group to help facilitate your practice.
Weekly sessions will be held every Thursday from 4 – 5 p.m. beginning September 24 and ending November 26. There will be no weekly session on November 12 due to fall reading week.
If this will be your first time participating, please register for our Language Exchange Kick-Off event on September 17 at 4 p.m. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about the program, ask questions and connect with other new participants.
Register for our Language Exchange Kick-Off event on September 17 at 4 p.m. A link to participate will be emailed to you two days before the event.
Are you a returning participant? Please fill out this form by September 17.
