Language & Cultural Exchange (LACE)

Do you want to learn more about the music, food, film, literature, festivals and the traditions of other cultures? Do you need to practice your English or another language? Make a new friend and hone your language skills in the Language & Cultural Exchange (LACE) program.

We help match you with another student or staff member who is interested in learning more about your language and country. Together you decide where, when and how your language and cultural exchange will take place.

We will hold a couple of social events each semester to give you a chance to get to know your partner or to help you meet a new partner if you haven't been matched yet.

We will connect you with a suitable LACE partner and invite you to the next LACE event.

All registrants are required to re-register as an expression of interest to continue in the program every calendar year.
