Are you interested in practicing languages and sharing culture? The Language and Cultural Exchange Program can help you practice spoken English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, and others. The program can also help you share your culture or help you learn about other countries/cultures. We match members of the SLU community who wish to practice and improve foreign language skills and/or who want to share or learn more about a country and its culture. Open to all SLU students, faculty, and staff.
