Intercambio


You are here

 

Intercambio Language and Culture Exchange is a way to trade language skills with native speakers. Intercambio pairs SAC folks looking to practice Spanish or Portuguese conversation (sometimes other languages, too) with foreign-born ESL students looking to practice English conversation. We launched Intercambio in 2008. We typically meet once a week on a weekday evening; sessions usually last 8 weeks. Working in pairs or small groups, we spend half the time speaking one language, half speaking another language. Participants are both students and teachers!

Past Intercambio groups have included participants from Chile, Peru, Brazil, Nepal, China, Haiti, El Salvador, Guatemala and, of course, the United States! We usually end Intercambio sessions with a global potluck. Many intercambio participants have become involved in other SAC programming, like the Nibble blog and cooking classes and the Illuminations Tour.

Note: Intercambio works best when people have an intermediate (or higher) level of a foreign language.

Current/Upcoming Sessions
The next 8-week Intercambio @ SCALE session will start in the winter of 2018; from 6:30 - 8pm on weekday evening; we meet at SCALE, 167 Holland Street. If you are interested in participating fill out this Word form (or just answer the questions found on this form and send in an email) and send to Rachel Strutt.
