Language Support

Language Tables, Events, and Conversation Appointments

Learning Commons Language Support offers multiple opportunities for UNK students, faculty, and staff to improve their speaking proficiency in  French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

Language Tables

Language Tables are designed to encourage students' confidence in learning to speak a new language. Native and non-native speakers guide students in fun activities and games centered on building conversational proficiency, as well as pronunciation and vocabulary mastery, in a relaxed and peer-centered environment. All are welcome to attend the Language Tables, though topics will align with course material in most cases.

Spring 2018 Language Tables are:

Language Day/s Time Place
Japanese (Sakura) Thursdays starting February 1 5 - 6 p.m. Learning Commons "Blue Room"
Spanish (La Mesa) Thursdays starting February 1 6 - 7 p.m. Learning Commons "Alcove"
Language Events

Language Events develop cultural appreciation through events that share special holidays, occasions, traditions, and societal norms of nations and cultures which speak different languages. Events will be updated as they are scheduled by French, German and Spanish Language Leaders.
