Peer Language Advising

Language Advising sessions will be offered online during the fall semester. Find the schedule below.

Language Advisers (LAs) is a group of Occidental College undergraduate students and Visiting Language Assistants who work closely with Oxy students pursuing the study of language.

 

LAs can help you:

  • Practice verbal language skills;
  • Practice pronunciation;
  • Discuss readings for better comprehension;
  • Discuss cultural, social or political issues relevant to the language of study;
  • Find and view current language materials in social media and other sources;
  • Work on particular needs by reviewing quizzes and exams;
  • Prepare for cultural events, karaoke performances, and open mics.
