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, 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.

The Fall 2018 Language Table schedule will be available by Wednesday, August 29:
