The Fries Center for Global Studies is excited to introduce the Wesleyan Language Ambassadors program!

Wesleyan Language Ambassadors are a group of multilingual students who are passionate about languages and helping their peers navigate Wesleyan’s open curriculum to reach their language learning goals.
