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.
