Welcome to RRR Week!
As we enter the last stretch of Spring 2021, we’ve made sure that the next two weeks are jam-packed with opportunities to engage in the Language Exchange Program. What better way to take a break from studying and round out the academic year than by spending some quality time with the global campus community? Read on below to learn all that’s in store in LEP:
Celebrate The Semester
This semester, we have collectively practiced from over 280 hours in our Language Pod and Conversation Group formats! That’s nearly 300 hours of sharpening our skills, exchanging experiences, and growing our global knowledge. The best part is, it’s not over yet, our Pods and Groups are continuing in these next two weeks! Join our final Language Pod and Conversation Group sessions of the semester to celebrate the growth you and your language peers have had this semester. Visit our schedules to see the updated times.
Explore the Globe
We’re so excited to announce that we will be hosting two socials this week! First, join us on Wednesday, 5/5, at 5PM for our next LEP Movie Party! This week, we’ll be watching I Dream in Another Language / Sueño en otro idioma. Winner of awards around the globe, this film follows a young linguist as he attempts to preserve an endangered indigenous language. To do so, however, he must bring together the last speakers, two men who have refused to speak for decades. Check out the trailer to learn more then RSVP to let us know you’ll be there!
You can also join us on Thursday, 5/6, from 5-6:30PM PDT for an SLC-favorite GeoGuessr Game Night! Come put your global knowledge and sleuthing skills to the test as you help your team navigate the map to figure out where in the world you are! We have to warn you though, one round of this game will have you hooked. Don’t believe us? RSVP and see for yourself!
Read, Write & Radiate
With the deadline extended to May 17th, there’s still time to craft your story for our New Suns short fiction contest. We’re making sure that there are plenty of opportunities to spark your creativity between now and then! If you’re looking to connect with your creativity in community, join us throughout the next two weeks for our New Suns Writing Sessions. These sessions are a great way to dedicate consistent time to your writing process and let your new worlds unfurl. Visit the full schedule to see our current times and RSVP. Our next session is tomorrow at 7PM PDT!
Looking for more inspiration? Join us in the LEP Reading Room this Friday at 12PM PDT to read how authors from around the globe have imagined their own new suns. You can also check out our full lineup to see the stories we’ve highlighted for this semester.
