Language House Application 2017-2018

Language House Application 2017-2018

Applications are due by Sunday, February 5, 2017.

All residents who live in the Language House must complete this application as well as agree to committing to and abiding by all the Language House expectations.

Minimum Expectations for living in the Language House:
1) All residents of the language house will be expected to attend and participate in the different cultural activities organized by the Language House Assistant.
2) Because the linguistic immersion experience only becomes possible when one language is used to the exclusion of others, use of the target foreign language within the spaces and activities of each linguistic group becomes imperative. Participants commit to exclusive use of the foreign language at all designated times and places.
3) It is recognized that English will indeed be the lingua franca at interlinguistic gatherings of Language House residents, or at events which faculty, staff, non-resident students and visitors may attend. Students are nevertheless strongly encouraged to use the target language whenever appropriate at such events.

Language House residents are required to pay a deposit of $75.00. This deposit will be held as a guarantee against equipment damage or loss or damage to the Language House facility; if there is no loss or damage beyond normal wear and tear, it is fully refundable at the end of the academic year.
