Discover a Language & Share Yours
Curious about other cultures? Language? Or you just want to try out a language before taking the class? Bilinguo is for you!
What is Bilinguo?
Bilinguo is about sharing and learning about different cultures and languages. Bilinguo participants will learn and practice basic conversation skills in a language of their choice.
Being part of Bilinguo at Westchester Community College will help with new interactions on an international scale.
Bilinguo is all about give and take. By participating in Bilinguo you are making a commitment to learning from and to teaching your peers. In essence the tutors are the students and the students are the tutors.
Tutoring sessions can be one on one or in small groups of up to 5. We recommend using the library study rooms, but Bilinguo can happen anywhere on campus.
