Language Houses

The Language Houses are a language program, facility, and course option all in one.  The Language House program is managed by the Modern Languages and Literatures and Asian Studies departments.  While inside the house, you will be challenged to speak only in your foreign language. You can share gatherings while absorbing knowledge of holidays, pastimes, celebrations, foods, and customs under the mentorship of your round-the-clock house assistant.
