Look, it's a viable option. I responded that way because I have had my fair share of foreign Tulane students strike up conversations with me to work on their English in *gasp* a bar. Frankly, we are devoid of programs that the OP is looking for and that is very sad. Are there other options? Yes, but no recognizable social offerings; at least not ones that make themselves known. Not all academic problems have to be sorted out in an academic setting. I'm a post grad myself, so I'm not just some uneducated yat.

To the OP: Delgado would be a great place to learn once you get past the initial culture shock. I took a few classes there when I first moved to New Orleans and the dialects spoken in there are enough to make your head spin.

My point exactly, what's wrong with going to a bar and having a little fun, killing two birds with one stone, heck ya might even get lucky that leads to all kinda new english words ya'd learn.
