Instructor Resources

Syllabus Suggestion (from the Office of Undergraduate Studies’ Faculty Resources)

The Language Learning Center (www.csusm.edu/llc) offers multiple activities and services that assist students in achieving their highest potential in all languages taught on campus (currently Spanish, French, German Arabic, Mandarin), as well as in American Sign Language and Linguistics 100 and 300. Peer tutors work individually and in small groups with students in 101 through 500s. We address everything from foundational grammar, accents, tones and conversation to advanced essay-writing thought processes.
