After last weekend’s festivities, cool down with some zen. Practice a new language Friday, get started on holiday shopping Saturday then relax on Sunday with a glow-in-the-dark yoga session.
Learning a new language is hard, especially if you haven’t practiced since high school. Thanks to Language Lunch, a place for students, staff and faculty to practice a new language, you can learn one in an informal setting. This week’s languages include Chinese, Japanese, Korean, English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. This event is hosted by the Elliott School Office of Graduate Student Services over Zoom.
Zoom. 12 p.m. EST. Register through Handshake or join on Zoom.
