Language teachers are fond of telling us that the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it as much as possible. That means living, breathing, and speaking (exclusively) in that language. It also means taking in the culture that goes a long with it, experiencing how that language works within a society. And while research suggests that total immersion education can sometimes be challenging, separating language and culture is also a disservice to students. Where can you find balance?

Lucky for you language learners out there, UWindsor  has a number of strong language learning communities that meet regularly on campus. These groups have lots of potential benefits.
