Anyone who is affiliated with MIT can participate in the LCE. Our members include students, staff, visiting scientists and scholars, faculty members, and their spouses and partners. Conversation partners arrange the time, place, and frequency of their meetings. They typically meet once a week for an hour.
These informal partnerships can help new members of our community get acquainted with the MIT community, while their English-speaking conversation partners improve their proficiency in another language. Members find the informal nature and flexibility of the LCE an enjoyable way to share their culture and learn more about someone else's.
