Conversation Hours

Conversation Hours are open to all that have some knowledge of the language and wish to improve their proficiency. Feel free to inquire about any language that isn't listed in the schedule.

“While many students might feel afraid to make mistakes in a classroom situation, they probably won't in the relaxed atmosphere of the conversation hours. Here everyone is encouraged to make mistakes. Simply try to express what's on your mind in the foreign language you learn. That has encouraged me to attend one of the conversation hours many times and surely helped me to speak more fluently, also during class”
Basti Lehman, Class of 2020
