Community

One of the best ways to improve your language skills and learn about other cultures is by connecting with speakers of your target language. Houston has a wealth of resources to facilitate this - community centers, language exchanges, volunteer opportunities, and cultural events for all the languages offered at UH (and others, too!). There are also many cultural organizations at UH that, while not necessarily language-related, are great opportunities to meet people from other cultures.

Centers

Houston has community centers and cultural organizations for nearly any language you can think of. Visit their websites to learn about upcoming events and opportunities to get involved. You can subscribe to their email newsletters or follow them on social media.
