The department offers three service learning courses in which students are able to use their language skills to volunteer in the Twin Cities metro area. Courses focus on healthcare, immigration issues, and K-12 education and provide students the chance to make a difference in the community as well as reflect on their experiences and discuss current issues with other students.
Tandem Conversation Partner Program
TandemPlus is a CLA Language Center program that organizes face-to-face exchanges in which language students can improve their ability to communicate in the language they are learning. By participating in TandemPlus, native speakers of two different languages can help each other develop their language skills and learn about another culture. Learn more about TandemPlus.
