The Center for World Languages and Cultures

The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. ~Ludwig Wittgenstein

Welcome to the Center for World Languages and Cultures (CWLC). We are here to support and enrich your study of languages and cultures at DU.

Come to the CWLC to work with language tutors, take undergraduate placement or graduate proficiency exams, study less-commonly taught languages, and prepare for study abroad.

Coming up at the CWLC:

Directed Independent Language Study (DILS)

The CWLC is excited to add a fourth language, Hindi, to our DILS program beginning in the winter quarter, 2014! Visit our DILS page for application information. Our current DILS languages also include Portuguese, Korean and Swahili.

Bosnian classes

The CWLC will offer classes in the Bosnian language during the Spring, 2014 quarter. Please stay tuned for more information once winter quarter has begun.

Please contact us if you are interested in studying a language not taught at DU.

Faculty Workshops

Come discuss some helpful and fun tools for language teaching and learning. Past workshops have included: iPad orientation, YouTube, Voicethread and Photostory. Stay tuned for workshops coming in winter, 2014.

Workshops are held in Sturm 303. RSVP to
