Internships Upperclassmen are encouraged to participate in modern language internships
in order to gain experience in teaching, business or other areas, while developing acquired language skills. You can intern at a local school by
assisting a teacher, or you can find an outside internship with the
aid of faculty. Interns who work in the class room help prepare
lessons, tutor students, and are group facilitators during class
you like helping other students while gaining practical experience, you should consider tutoring.
Tutoring gives you the opportunity to deepen your language skills and
help your peers. If you are interested in finding or becoming a tutor, please contact the department.
