Practice your language skills with the Language Buddies program!

Are you worried about maintaining your hard-earned language skills over the summer break?

Sign up to be a Language Buddy, a program sponsored by the Fries Center for Global Studies that seeks to connect Wes students, faculty, or staff members with one another to practice their language skills over academic breaks through a series of self-paced, conversational activities.

New for Summer 2022: students who are graduating Seniors as well as students in the incoming Freshman class are invited to participate!
