Petition Title: On-Campus Language Studios
Sponsor: Christopher von Claparede-Niemann
Submitted on February 8, 2019
We, as students of the George Washington University, believe that the University does not provide enough resources for the study of foreign language. The recent move of the University Language Center into a small, cramped office in Phillips 412 has rendered several language books and resources unusable. This action, along with competitive class spots in most language courses and a large, international student body requesting more resources to learn English, clearly demonstrates that foreign language has taken a lesser priority at GWU. New “Language Studios,” private rooms where students can speak aloud in their foreign language, will provide GW students with a space to address this problem and ensure their success.
