Language Clusters

Global Village IU teaches an unprecedented number of foreign languages – over 80 – including Native American, African, Near Eastern, Asian and Western languages. The list is truly impressive and, as a program of the College of Arts & Sciences, the Global LLC has strong ties to the foreign language departments. GLLC residents are routinely informed of language department conversation tables and related events. With over a dozen languages studied by residents of the Global LLC, it is also common practice to coordinate activities with the respective departments.

Global VillageAn important feature of the Global LLC is the “Language Clusters”—informal groups of students who are interested in a certain language. They meet for conversation, language-focused events (game nights, language hikes, guest speakers), and to share their language and culture interests. The following languages currently have dedicated groups in the Global LLC: Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
