Language Residents

The presence of the French, Korean and Spanish language residents among students is considered to be just as important as instruction in classes. They each serve as a resource person as well as a cultural representative and coordinator on campus, organizing everything from language tables to other diverse media activities such as music and films. In addition to leading cultural activities, each resident teaches conversation classes that accompany the basic language courses.

The following is a list of language residents in our department this year.
