NYU Speaking Freely

Get a taste of a new language and culture without leaving home! Speaking Freely is available to all NYU undergraduate and graduate students and staff. The 75-minute language coaching sessions meet once a week for ten weeks each semester at various locations on campus. Each week, you will learn how to communicate on a different topic, or you might enjoy a related activity – a movie, concert, or neighborhood visit – as part of a small, informal language group. No books are required and there’s no pressure of grades!

Speaking Freely offers sessions in Arabic, Czech, Dutch, French, Greek (Modern), Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish. It’s all free and easy. Meet new people and have fun. It’s the perfect way to try out a language and culture before you study or visit.

Speaking Freely sessions emphasize learning practical words and phrases you might use when traveling or studying abroad, as well as vocabulary related to various aspects of art, history, and culture. At least two levels of coaching are offered for most of the languages, and a third level is offered in two of the languages. Level 1 is a basic introduction for those who have no experience in the language. Level 2 is slightly more advanced, and meant for those who have completed Level 1 or those who have basic experience in the language. Level 3 is meant for those who are fairly proficient, and have studied the language for a few years or more in high school or college. All topics covered are based on student interest and conversation is emphasized.

Speaking Freely classes begin the week on September 18th and conclude December 4th.
