International Students Programs and Activities

Language Circles

Each quarter, UCR’s International Students and Scholars office hosts a Language Circle program to help you practice your foreign language speaking skills through informal conversations with native speakers. We typically offer 6 languages: Mandarin Chinese, Korean, French, Japanese, Spanish, and English. The program is open to everyone with all levels of proficiency. Join us to practice your language speaking skills and make new friends!
