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 LACE program.

We help match you with another student 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.
