Tutoring and Conversation

The Center for World Languages and Cultures offers peer tutoring for DU students seeking extra help in language courses, practicing conversation in a foreign language or preparing for language proficiency exams. We also offer review sessions for some languages in preparation for finals as well as ad hoc proficiency exam preparation sessions. Tutoring is offered quarterly during weeks 2-10, Monday through Thursday. We do not offer tutoring hours during finals or over the summer, winter or spring breaks. Our current tutoring schedule is below. Tutoring is free to all DU students and is first come, first served, on a drop-in basis. The CWLC currently has tutors in Arabic, Chinese, English (as a second language) French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Spanish. Please see the CWLC Tutoring Policies and Procedures for details.

Tutoring is held at the Language Center in the Academic Commons. We are located on the main floor, in front of the Math Center and to the right of the Writing Center.
