Supplemental Instruction for Beginners Language Classes

Free, weekly peer-group study sessions for first year language students

Strengthen your language skills through the Supplemental Instruction for Beginners’ Language Classes

How do you learn a second language?

Typically, after you’ve learned the language’s basic grammar, and internalized 1,500 – 2,000 of its most frequently-used words, you will reach a point when everything “clicks into place.” Once that happens, you will be able to read and write, speak, and understand the language, and you’ll be able to improve your own proficiency outside the classroom.

Intimidated? Don’t be!

The School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures offers free weekly study sessions for students in first-year language classes in Arabic, Chinese, German, Japanese and Russian.

Your Student Group Leader will facilitate group activities that will help you process course content and build good study strategies. You can attend regularly or drop in when you think it will benefit you the most.

Study groups will help you get to know your classmates better, and will help you succeed in language learning as a team.

Plan to attend these helpful sessions A new schedule will be posted within the first few weeks of the new term.
