Language Assistant Program

Language assistants are selected by Mount Holyoke's nine language programs.They work closely with language faculty liaisons to lead weekly conversation labs for specific language classes; to encourage students to speak the language at weekly language tables; and, in some cases, to organize events and activities to foster a sense of community through language practice and cultural celebrations.

Language mentors, also chosen by language programs, are available to students who choose to seek help in grasping the intricacies of learning a new language and becoming successful language learners.

Thanks to close collaboration between Residential Life, language faculty liaisons, and corresponding language assistants, students may also expand their linguistic and transcultural competence by electing to live on one of the five language floors that are part of the current Language Living-Learning Communities
