Asian Language Exchange & Social Network (ALESN) is a volunteer-run language and cultural program offering free language classes, culturally specific workshops and discussion groups, and social networking opportunities in New York City. While the program's classes are mainly concentrated on learning Asian languages, ALESN welcomes all language learners from any cultural and language backgrounds and encourages the mutual exchange of languages across cultures. ALESN will also coordinate dinners, picnics, Karaoke outings, Dim Sum and other social events. By providing essential educational resources in a supportive learning and social environment, ALESN's mission is to promote language and cultural appreciation, community bonding, and the spirit of volunteerism.
