Maintaining and Developing Fluency Committee Application
The Maintaining and
Developing Fluency Committee of the Brown Language Society is committed
to offering opportunities to practice languages at any level outside of
the classroom. We currently run conversation groups open to the Brown
population for Spanish, French, Arabic, and Greek. Committee members
will be responsible for facilitating these conversation groups. We are
also seeking individuals with ideas for expanding our offerings. Apply here.
The Brown Student Language Exchange is recruiting for a student to join their coordinating team. This individual would be immediately accepted onto the Brown Language Society (BLS) Executive Board.
The Brown Student Language Exchange (BSLE) introduces students to languages and cultures that they do not have access to through the Brown curriculum. We are an exploratory learning community facilitating a large-scale culture exchange in which fluent speakers of languages that are not offered by the university lead weekly language sections. In these language projects, students are exposed to language and culture in casual, yet structured, settings. We aim to pique students’ interest in languages and the cultures that inform them by encasing language instruction within a curriculum of cultural discussion.

Hey, Spanish speakers! Below is a message from Amanda, a Campus Coordinator for Health Leads:
Want to work with Spanish-speaking families and see another side of Providence? Interested in social policy and health advocacy?
Health Leads advocates work at Hasbro Children’s Hospital connecting low-income families to the resources that are critical to health but typically lie outside the scope of typical medical care. In partnership with physicians and community organizations, we address a broad spectrum of social and economic issues affecting our clients. By then using the data and evidence from our successes with these families, the organization seeks to catalyze a significant transformation in the American healthcare system by engaging hospital administrators and policy leaders. Further, we envision that many of our advocates will go on to become leaders committed to this systemic change.
