Whether you are interested in making friends that speak a language you want to practice, want to gain insights into cultural codes that are hard to learn from textbooks, or prepare for a trip overseas, this program is for you. 

The UNSW Language Exchange Program allows UNSW students in Australia to exchange language and cultural insights in a relaxed environment. Participants are matched with up to three students that speak their language of choice for reciprocal learning. Groups meet and exchange language skills weekly for a minimum of 90 mins and also get the opportunity to interact with other program participants at program-wide events.

Register via this form and our matching software will match applicants on a first come first served basis. You will be notified via email once you've been matched. Tips! For high-demand languages like English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Korean, we may not have enough native speakers to meet the demand so applying early and listing several language preferences will increase your chance to get a match. 

Once you've been matched

Participants will be invited to the Language Exchange Launch on Tuesday 20 September 2022, where they will get the opportunity to meet their team and other language exchange program participants. You will also receive advice about how to share a language and get the most out of the experience! While participating in the program, groups are expected to meet weekly during the term (a minimum of 7.5 hours in total), except during exam periods and term breaks.
