Have you ever imagined that you could learn a foreign language while going out for coffee or rocking at a concert?

Have you ever imagined you could learn a foreign language while going to a party or rocking at a concert? While having coffee, walking through the city or just by watching a movie after having dinner?

As great and delightful as it sounds, this fantasy has just become true for all Augustana students. From the month of November to the end of the academic year, everyone is invited to join a dynamic new  classroom: a meeting between only two students where the date, the time and the activity of the appointment is set by you and your language partner. Over the years, it has been seen that the best way to learn a foreign language is to be able to speak it outside of the academic world.  Students gain confidence by being able to express every thought in a completely different environment to that filled with long study books and interminable lectures.  It is for this reason that we invite you to join this modern learning technique, located in the center of the real world, where you have the control over the clock while the teacher is a student and the student is a teacher at the same time.
To participate, please fill out the form next to the Learning & Beyond board located outside of the Library, take it to M309 and tell us what language(s) you would like to learn or practice, what language(s) you speak and what activities you like to do. We will match you with a perfect language Rendez-vous partner, where both parts will get total benefit from the programme.


Don’t miss an opportunity that could only come once in a lifetime. Get involved and you will be speaking a foreign language before you even notice.
