What is Intercultural PAL?

Intercultural PAL is a support scheme where University students, who are native speakers, facilitate support sessions for both Modern Foreign Language (MFL) and Languages for All (LFA) students to enhance their understanding of the language and culture of study. 

Sessions are currently aimed at students at intermediate to advanced levels, except for Japanese which is for beginner and intermediate levels.

Intercultural PAL sessions have no cost, run weekly, and take place within a friendly and informal environment.

There is no need to register, just turn up.
