Many students at WashU are from international backgrounds. Many students at WashU are studying a foreign language. The WashU campus is a great place to connect language learners to native speakers.
While the WashU faculty provides comprehensive academic support to students, knowledgeable peers may be hard to come by for foreign language students. Lingmatch (working title) would work as platform for language learners and speakers to schedule coffee chats and lunches. The project would offer the peer-led support not available in classes & a way to make friends!
