LCT Postcard

Language Conversation Tables (LCT)

are one of UC San Diego International House's premier programs. Each quarter a variety of language tables are led by hosts and attended by students, staff, faculty, and anyone from the public willing to join. Language Tables provide the chance to teach and learn a language in a natural environment, through conversation with someone who is fluent/conversational in that language. They take place weekly. The LCT schedule changes every quarter. 

Fall 2017 LCT's will occur on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays
