The Language Learners’ Lounge (LLL) is a series of informal student-focused events for those who are interested in language-related topics. Our goal is to provide language students at IU with a community where they can share experiences, resources, and tips for success, regardless of which language they are studying. Each semester we hold one LLL event, featuring presentations by and discussions with fellow students, language instructors, and alumni.
We currently offer three reoccurring LLL event themes each year:
- Fall: "Tackling College Level Language Courses: Expectations and Strategies" – Tips to help first-year language learners adjust to and succeed in college-level introductory language courses.
- Spring: “Where Can World Languages Take You?” – Success stories from IU students and alumni whose language studies have inspired their academic and career paths.
- Summer: “Celebrating Multilingualism” – Helping motivated language learners share tips and techniques for effective language learning, especially for those who are or want to become proficient in multiple languages.
