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!
 
How does language matching work?
Our Language Exchange system assigns buddies considering all your native languages and language preferences, in order, as well as whether you have said you are happy to learn anything. 
 
Who can join Language Exchange?
This program is open to both domestic and international students, and all USU Members.
