Language Residents

The Pomona College Language Residents are the heart of the Oldenborg Center. These young professionals from China, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Spain, and Argentina mentor students of language, teach the foreign language conversation classes, organize cultural events, foster conversation at the Oldenborg Dining Hall language tables, and much more.
