The Language Maintenance Tutorials are primarily designed to meet the needs of Columbia's graduate and professional school students. We offer conversation groups and individual tutorials with instruction focused on everyday spoken language. The tutorials are designed to provide students with prior language proficiency* with the opportunity to maintain and advance their language skills. They are led by trained Columbia language instructors with experience in teaching a variety of levels. The tutorials generally meet once per week for 10 weeks during the semester.

Registration for the tutorials is open now until February 7th. If you are interested in enrolling you should register in the office of the Language Resource Center. The tutorials and conversation groups will begin around the 3rd week of February.
