On Friday June 5, NSLI-Y interactive hosted a panel of alumni who shared tips, resources, and strategies for online language learning and staying motivated during social distancing. The event included a panel discussion among NSLI-Y alumni about online language learning resources followed by breakout room discussions where webinar participants asked questions about the NSLI-Y program and online language learning directly and also brainstormed effective strategies to self-study a language during social distancing.

The panelists in this webinar were members of the iEARN Inclusion, Diversity, and Equality Abroad (IDEA) Committee which is a student-led resource for NSLI-Y students aimed at promoting inclusion and diversity within the program and supporting NSLI-Y participants inclusively and equally.
