Who are we?

Wolfson is the most cosmopolitan college in Cambridge and Wolfson Language & Culture Society aims to take advantage of this unique melting-pot of languages and cultures by offering members of Wolfson a chance to learn or teach a language. Learning a foreign language is not only fun but an important skill in any CV. In the contemporary language classes we have many students who use our classes as part of their preparation for studying or working abroad post Cambridge. However, just as many simply love learning a foreign language and whatever your reason may be, we welcome you to take part. Another important point for us is to provide Wolfson MPhil and PhD students in linguistics and area studies with an opportunity to gain teaching experience in a relaxed and friendly environment. Alongside these academic benefits we arrange termly informal presentations where students are invited to share their experience of different cultures.

If you are interested in learning or teaching a language please do get in touch. We would also very much like to hear from you if you want to share your personal travel experience or simply how it was like where you grew up. Your own culture may seem boring to you, but to us all cultures (including British!) are exotic and we would love to hear about them from firsthand experiences.
