Welcome to the Language Acquisition Center!

Teacher talking to class Students working

The Language Acquisition Center (LAC), located in room 445, is specifically designed to help students wishing to improve their second-language skills. In the LAC, students can practice their individual grammar and pronunciation skills, listen to lectures and selected readings, record themselves, practice speaking with a partner, or work individually on the computer. The LAC has been fitted with state-of-the-art recording equipment as well as computers to enhance not only the students' learning methods, but the instructors' teaching strategies as well. We hope that this center will help you get the most out of your linguistic journey with your peers and instructors alike.

LAC lab rules:


The LAC is intended for your education, not your recreation. Don't forget to save your work often to your disk. Work saved on the hard drive may be lost after you leave the computer.

If you have any questions, ask for assistance.
