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 2018-2019 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.
Interested students are invited to attend an information session at 5:30 p.m. Monday, April 9 in the Antone Academic Center, Room 107.
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 Marion Gayraud of France and Douglas Lopez of Venezuela.
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.
To apply, visit salve.edu/language-house-application. Applications are due April 15, but students are encouraged to apply early as space is limited.
