The Foreign Language and Culture Society

The Foreign Language and Culture Society (FLCS) is a student-run organization, whose objective is to provide the student body with cultural experiences. FLCS' most important function is its language discussion groups. This fall the organization was able to organize twenty-four language groups, including Mandarin, German, and Farsi, for students with different skill levels. Each group is lead by a language discussion leader, usually another graduate student who is fluent in that language. This year the Society was also able to offer more than 200 licenses to Rosetta Stone, providing students with twenty-four hour online access to the language of their choice. Response was overwhelming and licenses will continue into next semester. Finally, every month, FLCS hosts a culture night open to all Bush School students. Past events have celebrated Indian, German, South American, and Iranian cultures.

Students who have been a part of FLCS activities have many positive comments.

"I really enjoy learning about other cultures from the point of view of people who know them best."

"The Farsi language group has been super fun and a great way to practice speaking Farsi."

"FLCS is a great organization that opens the eyes of students to diverse cultures."

"The Farsi language group has been the perfect place to practice the skills I've been learning through my use of Rosetta Stone at home."

"The tutors are very motivated and very helpful. They are willing to meet with you at times outside of the official schedule. They seem really helpful and effective."

"Language groups provide an opportunity to practice speaking with individuals who are good at their language."

"Language groups are a great way to put what I have learned into practice as well as get practice in the areas I need to work on."

"Even with a hard language like Mandarin, language groups make it seem possible."
