Here's the schedule for 100-level students in French, Geman, Italian, and Spanish, and here's a video of a typical tutoring sessionOur peer tutors are looking forward to meeting your students!

Save the date: Celebrate Mother Language Day with a MY UIC Language Story event on Tuesday, February 25, 12-2 pm in Grant Hall 308. Share your own story about languages you understand, speak, want to speak, dream in, speak with your family, are learning right now! Honor UIC's wonderful diversity by sharing your story and hearing others' stories. Bring a friend, a colleague, a student: we'll have hot chocolate, coffee, tea, and fresh popcorn! Join us!

Register FREE for the 2020 Language Symposium (co-sponsored by LCLC!), coming up in April. The topic is: Peer Collaboration and Second Language Learning: Innovations and Reflections. More information on The Chicago Language Symposium 2020.

Weekly Article:

Indigenous languages matter - but all is not lost when they change or even disappear 

"UNESCO's International Year of Indigenous Languages recently came to an end after a year of celebration of linguistic diversity. And with a "decade of Indigenous languages" now under consideration, it's a good time to review what these celebrations mean.

"When the media report on the crisis of endangered languages, the view there's an associated loss of culture, identity and even memory, is widely expressed.

"While there are very good reasons to deplore the loss of small languages, assuming this loss condemns cultural identity may be unhelpful and reductive to those who have already shifted away from their heritage language."

 

Focus on Polish at Daley Library! 

During the month of February you can find a selection of Polish poetry (in Polish and bilingual editions) on 4th floor north of Daley Library. This rotating poetry display highlights diverse voices in the library collection, including voices beyond English. Past displays include poetry in Spanish and worlds by trans poets. If you have any suggestions for future displays or titles, please contact Cathy Lantz, clantz@uic.edu.
