The Language and Culture Exchange (LCExchange) is a scheme based on the idea of connecting two people who speak different languages to learn from one another. For example, a Spanish speaking student who wants to improve their English will be paired up with an English speaking student who wants to learn Spanish. The exchange will occur through friendly conversation (either face to face or online) in a relaxed atmosphere.
The focus is not only on learning the language but also understanding the customs and traditions of that country. Learning happens through doing, so the idea of the LCExchange is to practice the language whenever you can and to meet with your partner as often as possible. What better way to learn a new language (or practice an existing one) in an informal and fun way! It’s a fantastic way to learn or improve your language skills whilst meeting new people and best of all, it's free to Middlesex students.
Remember, as a pair you are in control of how the partnership will work. From how often you meet up, to the topics you wish to cover and how long the partnership will last. All of these elements will be negotiated between you both to see how you can best learn from one another and make the Language and Culture Exchange work for you.
Register your interest by filling in this form. We’ll do our very best to help to find a partner with the language you wish to learn.
