Language House seeking applications for 2019-2020 academic year
The Office of International Programs, in collaboration with the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, is inviting first-year students to submit applications to participate in the Language House during the 2019-2020 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 languages and cultures. Students of any ability level are welcome to apply.
Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants, 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 and across the campus, such as language tables, film nights, cultural events and community instruction in languages and culture. This year, Salve Regina welcomed Yumi Philippe of France and Brenda Barreiro of Columbia.
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 teaching assistants 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 March 28, but students are encouraged to apply early as space is limited. Applicants also need to complete the registration process for on-campus housing with the Office of Residence Life.
