The ERC is no longer accepting applications for the 2013-2014 academic year.
The ERC’s Language Link provides an opportunity for BU students to enhance their foreign language skills in small, informal, conversation groups led by native and accomplished speakers. Students expand their knowledge of other cultures, increase vocabulary, and improve their pronunciation as an added dimension to classroom learning.
The goal is to have fun while increasing confidence and social interaction with other students who want to practice foreign languages, whether related to coursework or study abroad.
In order to be a Language Link leader, a student must be in good academic, disciplinary, and financial standing at Boston University, as verified by the ERC. Language Link Leaders are typically native speakers of the language they wish to lead and work up to five hours per week.
Interested applicants must obtain a faculty recommendation.*
*The purpose of obtaining a faculty recommendation is to ensure your fluency in the language as well as to assess your skill at leading a conversation group. Please refer to the Faculty Recommendation form below for a suggested list of faculty with whom you can meet for completion of the recommendation form.
