The Language Exchange Society is a welcoming space that aims to bring together language learners from all nationalities at the University of Stirling. We want students to have the opportunity to learn a new language outside of their degree programme. We encourage you to attend our free online and face-to-face events organised by students who are sharing their mother tongue or the language that they are learning and help us build an inclusive and enthusiastic language learning community.
 
History
To make up for a lack of evening language courses at the uni, in 2021 we founded our society and created a Microsoft Teams page that is accessible to all students, members of staff and the local community. Since then, we've grown our team and at the Clubs & Societies Awards 2022 we won the Best Publicity and the Club of Culture awards, and received an honourable mention for both Club of the Year and Biggest Contribution to the Student Body. We couldn't be happier!
 
Our team
Our committee is mainly made up of international students. If you want to contribute to this society and share your language, email us at stir.languageexchange@gmail.com. If you want to become a member who enjoys voting rights in the Language Exchange Society, purchase your membership for £5 through the Students Union website!

New! Free BSL classes
With the support of the Vice Chancellor's Fund, we are offering a British Sign Language (BSL) and Deaf Awareness course during the autumn semester 2022, free and open to staff, students and members of the local community. Lessons will take place every Tuesday starting on 27th September 2022, 7-9pm.
Important! The topic of the first class (27th Sept 2022, 7pm at Cottrell 2V1) is Deaf Awareness, and is open to all, no sign up needed. The sign up for the rest of the BSL classes is now closed, as we have reached maximum capacity.
