Peer Learning Workshop Series

The department of World Languages, Literatures & Cultures held the first installment of Student Success-focused activities with the Peer Learning Workshop Series. The pilot series of workshops began fall semester 2022. The workshop dates are October 26, November 3, and November 10, and are led by WLLC undergraduate students.

All workshops are for WLLC undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty.

The fall workshop series allows WLLC students to share their experience, knowledge, and helpful tips on successfully learning a world language.
