Language Exchange Program

The Language Exchange Program (LEP) will connect students who wish to learn, practice, and improve their foreign language skills. A special emphasis will be placed on speaking practice, as students will be able to exchange conversation in their own language (or the language they are very fluent in) for conversation in the language they are learning or wish to learn. Most importantly, the program will involve not only learning each other’s language but also exploring each other’s cultural similarities and differences. The participants should be affiliated with Brandeis and should be willing to commit to at least one hour of meetings with a buddy per week where they spend half time teaching their language and half time practicing the language they want to learn.

For more information, check out the LEP Slides PDF.
