Virtual Conversation Tables

For the Fall 2020 semester, all conversation tables will be online. Many virtual conversation tables are organized by specially-trained student assistants in the Foreign Language Resource Collection, who use the FLRC Virtual Lab to host the events.

Tips for a Successful Online Conversation Table

  • Test your microphone and camera before you join
  • Use a headset or headphones.
  • Look at the camera. Place the video window as close to your camera as possible
  • Speak clearly and be patient.
  • Mute the camera to help with a slow connection.
  • Mute your audio when you’re not speaking. This lessens background noise and helps everyone else hear clearly
