Carnegie Mellon University

Modern Languages Student Advisory Council

MLSAC members are Modern Languages majors and minors, students taking classes in the Department of Modern Languages, and those from other departments with an interest in languages and cultures. While MLSAC members may be pursuing different courses of study, they’re united by a shared appreciation for language learning and a desire to convey to other students the benefits of studying languages and cultures.

What does MLSAC do?

MLSAC organizes and participates in many multicultural activities including potlucks, UC late night events, Polyglot Café (multilingual conversation over hot beverages and snacks), and an international film and food event held each spring. The group also serves as a liaison between Modern Languages students and the Department of Modern Languages by sharing ideas and suggestions for improvement with department faculty and administrators.

MLSAC Faculty Advisors:

Khaled Al Masaeed, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Arabic Studies
Yoshihiro Yasuhara, Associate Teaching Professor of Japanese Studies

MLSAC is a great way to learn about different cultures and languages. It is also a good way to teach others about languages and cultures in which you are interested. You will also meet a great group of people! For more information or to join, contact the faculty advisors, Khaled Al Masaeed and Yoshihiro Yasuhara.
