Language Buddies

ROTC Cadets/Midshipmen at BU already enrolled during the academic year in any critical-language course at Boston University (including not only Arabic, Chinese, Russian or Turkish but also Hindi-Urdu, Korean, Persian, or an African language) can be assigned a Language Buddy mentor. The Language Buddies are advanced students in the respective language or trained native speakers who can provide you with free study help and cultural enrichment.

The Language Buddies program aims to support ROTC students by minimizing language-learning anxiety and providing a relaxed and  fun learning atmosphere as well as opportunities to develop cultural awareness.

To request a language buddy, please contact the program administrator at
