About Us

The Language Conversation Exchange (LCE) is an organization dedicated to sharing the power of language through conversation partnerships and informal events open to all members of the MIT community.

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 MIT, while helping their conversation partners improve their language proficiency. Members find the informal nature and flexibility of the LCE an enjoyable way to share their culture and learn more about someone else's.

The LCE is sponsored by Community Wellness at MIT Medical.

Our team is made up of a Senior Program Manager in Community Wellness, two Graduate Community Fellows, sponsored by the Office of Graduation Education, and volunteers from across the MIT community.
