Language House seeking applicants for 2017-2018 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 during the 2017-2018 academic year.
The Language House living learning community is an opportunity for students to live in a small house setting on campus with other students interested in the French and Spanish language and cultures. Students of any ability level are welcome to apply.
Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTAs), selected by the Fulbright program in a competition held in their home countries, travel to Salve Regina to live and teach during the academic year and facilitate the programming at the Language House. This year, Salve Regina welcomed Marc Andrade from Spain and Emmanuel Sanseau from France.
Language House residents, along with other interested students from outside the house, watch movies, participate in language tables, make meals and take part in cultural activities, all while practicing the target language. Many Language House residents also volunteer with the FLTAs to deliver a six-week after school program in French and Spanish to Pell Elementary school students each semester.
“For the past three years, the Language House has provided myself and others with the opportunity for not only linguistic exchange, but cultural as well,” said Christopher Nova ’17. “I believe both are essential for one to be culturally competent.”
