Language Support

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

Language Tables

Language Tables are weekly group sessions that are designed to help students build 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 many cases.
