The purpose of the UW Culture and Language Exchange Club (UWCLEC) is to promote the exchange of language and culture between students by forming small, informal study groups. This club complements academic language courses nicely, and focuses on improving the individual's speaking, listening, and writing skills through lectures as well as fun activities.
