How does Language Exchange work?
In Language Exchange, we attempt to pair you with a buddy who is a native speaker of a language of your choice and/or who wants to learn a language that you are a native speaker of.
Once we’ve found you a match, we’ll provide more details to get you started. From there, you and your buddy can contact each other to arrange sessions in a way that suits both. You’re welcome to bring along your own language-learning resources, but please know there are no compulsory formal classes, materials or homework involved in this program!
You can also see our USU Language Exchange Welcome Booklet HERE
for some topic suggestions and activity pages for you and your buddy.
How does language matching work?
Our Language Exchange system assigns buddies considering all your native or fluent languages and language preferences in order. If you have said you are happy to learn any language, this is also taken into consideration.
Who can join Language Exchange?
The Program is open to USU members, both domestic and international students are encouraged to get involved.
