Brown Language Society

The mission of the Brown Language Society is to bring language lovers together and to demonstrate the value of language learning to the Brown community. Through extracurricular programming, BLS complements the University's language resources and responds to language-related demand. To accomplish its goals, BLS hosts weekly language programs and organizes language-related events.  Ongoing BLS programs include:

  • Charla, a Spanish language immersion program that helps student maintain and develop their Spanish fluency through regular student-led group meetings.
  • Le Salon, a French language conversation group in which native and advanced French speakers lead casual conversation. French learners of all levels are invited to come practice their language skills.
  • Κουβεντούλα, a Modern Greek discussion group that creates a space for students to develop their conversation skills and learn from their peers.
  • Brown Student Language Exchange, a program in which native speakers of languages that are not offered by the University expose students to their language and culture.
