The Language Communities in French and Spanish opened in the fall of 2000 to provide a means for interested students to blend their residential and academic experiences in order to enhance the overall quality of college life. The goal of the French and Spanish Language Communities is to explore and promote the richness and wonder of all French-speaking and Spanish-speaking cultures through a simulated immersion environment. Residents speak French or Spanish on a daily basis through spontaneous and organized activities, such as informal conversations, movie nights, dinners, dances and parties, guest lectures, concerts, excursions, community outreach, and a required weekly conversation course.

Any student, incoming or already enrolled at UGA, who has studied French or Spanish at the intermediate level is eligible to apply.
