Message from FLSR Program Director

Robert Erickson, FLSR Program Director - "I invite you to step into another culture without leaving campus and take part in a most unique program. Hundreds of BYU students have immersed themselves in a second language and culture by becoming part of the FLSR program. I am always amazed at the progress in speaking proficiency and cultural understanding FLSR students make. Just imagine what it could do for you!"

FLSR Program

  • Tenants living at the FLSR participate in a unique language immersion experience, the FLSR Program, in conjunction with pursuing regular class schedules.
  • Tenants in each apartment study and speak the same target language.
  • A Language Facilitator resides in each apartment, modeling correct language usage. They also help tenants to progress rapidly to higher levels of proficiency.
  • Tenants obtain a greater understanding and appreciation of the target language culture.
  • Each language house (all apartments with the same target language) is supervised by a Faculty Coordinator. These members of the BYU Faculty meet regularly with the language houses, offering support and assistance within the program.
  • Each language house eats dinner together Monday-Thursday from 6:00-7:00 pm.
    • Participation in the language house dinner program is a requirement, not an option.
  • Tenants must enroll in a language course taught on campus, or an independent academic internship course carried out in the target language and offered through the respective language department.
