The American Culture & Conversation (AC&C) class is an 8 week course designed for international students and scholars to learn more about American culture while also improving their English language conversation skills. AC&C will cover topics like slang, idioms, UCLA traditions, social and professional etiquette, romantic relationships, American sports and Holidays, and more! 

The main objective of AC&C is to help students and scholars integrate more quickly into US and UCLA life by understanding American culture and its components. Improving students' English conversation skills is equally important, which will come easily through AC&C because of the variety of teaching materials used -- videos, games, debate, etc. 

Registration for AC&C classes is open until October 20th. Classes begin the week of October 9th and are FREE for UCLA and Extension Students and just $25 for non-students. For more information on class times and to register for a course please click here.

Dear Mr. Ericksen:

First I'd like to thank you for directing such an amazing place as Dashew Center, I as an international student appreciate all your work and programs. I'm writing you to give you some feedback about the trip to Yosemite. This was the best trip ever, I'm really glad you are looking into new directions to integrate international students and this trip has been my best experience at UCLA (I'm starting my third year as a graduate student). Jennie and all her staff organized perfectly this trip. The hotel was good as well as all the activites they programmed. My expectations were completely overcome by their work. Not only we had an amazing time, they always tried to integrate everyone to form one group. We worked as a team and now I think that all of us will never forget this three lovely persons that made this trip a reallity. Thank you very much.
