Trying to learn a new language? Want to take what you’re learning in the classroom a step further? This program connects language learners together to improve their conversation skills and meet students from around the world. Language Exchange is open to everyone and all language levels!

Each quarter we will pair you with a native speaker of the language you are learning for one-on-one conversations that take place at your leisure and according to your schedule. You also get to help teach your own language, so that you both get the chance to help one another. Spend one hour speaking with your exchange partner in your native language, then one hour speaking in your requested language!

If you are selected to participate in the Winter 2018 Quarter, you must attend the Pairing Party on Tuesday, January 23 from 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM. If you do not attend this event, you will not be able to participate in the program for the Fall.

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.
