Language Lunch Tables

On any given weekday, rookies and native speakers, professors and students alike gather for lunch at tables sponsored by a variety of Smith's foreign language departments and programs. If it's Friday, it's Korean, and visitors and students at all levels of language proficiency are welcome. They tell stories, crack jokes, make weekend plans. The beginners fall back on English words when they are flummoxed. The more proficient Korean speakers talk easily and quickly.
