World Languages and Cultures Language Resource Center

The Language Resource Center - A&S 273

The Language Lab is an integral part of the Department of World Languages and Cultures and serves as an extension of the classroom with the goal of enhancing all phases of the language learning process. Students will find a relaxed  environment in which they are encouraged to work on improving reading and listening comprehension, writing, grammar, pronunciation and speaking skills. It provides  support to both students and faculty across all levels of instruction. Its purpose is to empower students to reach proficiency in one or more languages through exposure to a myriad of enrichment activities  and resources.   

       Hours: Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. except during holidays
