No teaching experience required - just enthusiasm! Activities and support are provided by a facilitator. Partners will meet every week for a total of 8 weeks. You spend half of each meeting in each language – the one you’re learning and the one you’re teaching. This is a fully student-run program, and it’s free! It’s also great for meeting people across cultures.


  • SFU or FIC student (undergraduate or graduate)
  • SFU faculty and staff
  • Partner/spouse of SFU student, staff or faculty
  • Basic English knowledge
  • Basic level in the language you want to learn/improve (enough to say a few words, such as introduce yourself)
  • Able to commit to meeting with a partner 1.5 hours a week for 8 weeks
