Language Sharing Sessions

Language Sharing Sessions


The ISC Language Sharing Sessions (LSS) provides all students at UTSC an opportunity to teach peers their language, while also learning a new language in the process.  

How the Program Works 

LSS is for all students at UTSC who are interested in studying a language or have a general interest in language. There will be weekly sessions virtually/online during the Fall 2022 (September to December) & Winter 2023 (January – April).  


Students who are interested in participating in LSS can sign up here: (Microsoft Forms


By registering you will be placed in two groups: one for language sharing and one for language learning. Each weekly session is 1 hour long. A student participant will use the first half of the session to share/teach their language, whereas the second half of the session will be focused on language learning/practice. 


There will be facilitators at each session with conversation topics, games and activities to generate discussion!
