Language House seeking applicants for 2015-2016 academic year
The Office of International Programs, in collaboration with the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, is inviting current freshmen to submit applications to participate in the Language House living learning community for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The living learning community is an opportunity for students to have a French or Spanish immersion experience while living on campus. Students of any ability level are welcome to apply.
Fulbright foreign language teaching assistants facilitate the living learning community. This year, Salve Regina welcomed Romina Fetta from Argentina and Christelle Miskisak from France. Together with their teaching assistants, students watch movies, participate in language tables, volunteer at Pell Elementary School and make meals, all while speaking the target language.
“This is an excellent opportunity for students to live collaboratively with native speakers and share new cultural and linguistic experiences,” said Dr. Emily Colbert Cairns, assistant professor in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages. “It is a unique experience and Salve is the first school in Rhode Island to boast a Language House.”
