Language Houses Furman University

Our language houses are dynamic and unique: a language program, facility, and course option all in one. When you enroll in a language house, you can spend your sophomore, junior, or senior year living out a daily commitment to using your concentrated language while soaking up fascinating cultural knowledge under the guidance of a native speaking assistant.

The language houses are located in the North Village residential complex, while your sleeping quarters and residence will be nearby in building A. While inside the house, you will be challenged to speak only in your foreign language. You can share gatherings while absorbing knowledge of holidays, pastimes, celebrations, foods, and customs under the mentorship of your round-the-clock house assistant.
