Language Link Leader

Language Link Mission

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.

Position Requirements

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 four hours per week. We are currently looking for students to lead our Japanese and Korean language conversation groups for the Fall 2016 semester.

Candidates invited to interview 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.  More information concerning a recommendation will be discussed should you be offered the opportunity to interview for a position.

For more information on becoming a Language Link leader, contact Sarah Farkas, Assistant Director for Mentoring and Outreach, at or call 617-353-7077.
