Learn a Language!

Learning a language is the first step to knowing a variety of cultures. At HICE, we offer a diverse set of courses, ranging from periodic language courses for those who are learning a foreign language for the first time, to language events where you can have fun chatting, to lectures where you can learn about a foreign society and culture while speaking the language. Please come to check out our courses!
