ISU Lingo Table

On Tuesday, November 7th 5-7 pm, ISU will be hosting our 4th semesterly LingoTable event. Students of all levels are welcome to stop in for however long they like to engage in conversations in any language of their choice. 

 

This year we will be offering: Spanish, French, Italian, German, and Mandarin, among others. The event will take place in the University Center Rangos Ballroom.

 

We would truly appreciate if you could let your students know of this event in class so that they can further practice through participation in casual conversation. If possible, you could encourage students by offering some extra credit for your class. It is our hope that they will attend in groups to make it a better experience.

 

If you have the time, please feel free to join us! We would be more than happy to have expert speakers help us engage in conversations.

 

Thank you for your time,

 

Adriana Pagán
