Bringing Language to Life Outside the Classroom

We are friendly, welcoming and informal. Students do not need to be taking a specific classe to use the LLC. Bring a friend!

We support Spanish, French, Mandarin, Arabic, American Sign Language (ASL), German, and Linguistics 100 & 300.


Mixers with International Students!

Mingle, eat, drink, practice your skills, and connect with students from across the globe.  All language levels supported!

How Tutoring Works

  • This is different than teaching: we work with you.
  • Before asking for guidance, do as much as you can.
  • We do not proofread, edit, translate, or do work for you.
  • Some instructors offer extra credit or require visits for tutoring or independent study. Info about Instructors.

We can work with you on:

  • Grammar
  • Homework
  • Verb conjugations
  • Pronunciation and accent
  • Conversation
  • Test prep
  • Study techniques and strategies for success
  • Arabic alphabet
  • Chinese pinyin, characters and tones
  • ASL signs, classifiers and body languag
  • Spanish advanced grammar for heritages speakers
  • Spanish written accents
  • Spanish essay-writing
  • More!
