Workshop Series: How to Study a Foreign Language

Workshop Series: How to Study a Foreign Language

Learning a language is one of the most important pursuits of students and global citizens around the world.  

Developing higher levels of proficiency takes time and a willingness to “play” with the language. It isn’t reasonable to expect that studying a language for four years of high school and/or four years of college can lead to advanced or superior levels of proficiency without intensive study or study abroad. No matter where you are on your journey to learn a second or third language, this website offers strategies and insights into effective language study.

Join us for Session 5 of this series, "Learning Beyond the Classroom," which offers insights into resources and tools available for free to supplement your language study outside of what is shared during class.  

If you want to develop your language study skills, come participate in one or more of these workshops, offered by the Language Resource Center, in the Department of Languages and Culture Studies.  

The workshops are offered by Dr. Bobby Hobgood, Director of the Language Resource Center in the Department of Languages and Culture Studies and Dr. Adriana Medina of the Cato College of Educationand they are open to all language learners of all levels.  

The series times and dates appear below.  

All workshops are held in the Language Resource Center, located in Room 434 on the fourth floor of the College of Education Building (COED 434).
