Syllabus Suggestion

Specific wording for Modern Language Studies Department syllabi...
The Language Learning Center (www.csusm.edu/llc) brings language to life outside the classroom. The LLC offers multiple activities and services that assist students in achieving their highest potential in all languages taught on campus: Spanish, French, German, Arabic, and Mandarin. Peer tutors and conversation partners work individually and in small groups on topics covered in 101-303. We work collaboratibvely with students in areas including but not limited to: grammar, spoken accents, written accents, conversation, Arabic alphabet, Chinese pinyin, characters and tones, Spanish essay-writing, study techniques, and strategies for academic success. We also offer special events such as our Careers in Spanish Speaking Fields Guest Speakers Series and International Student Mixers.
