Please invite your students or give credit to attend the Weiss Language Center (LB304) this week to practice your language and have fun in the process. We are open every week from 5pm-9pm Monday through Thursday. Students can find conversation partners in Spanish, French, Italian and German or resources on how to practice a variety of languages independently.
