Language Proficiency Center
A fundamental part of the Language Resource Center (LRC) is the Language Proficiency Center (LPC). The Language Proficiency Center pairs language students with LRC sponsored Spanish and French tutors through an on-line scheduling system providing undergraduates with a tutorial appointment during which they can discuss composition errors, review video project outlines, discuss important grammatical topics, and engage in authentic target language conversation in fifteen or thirty minute segments. They then meet their graduate student tutors either online via links in the on-line scheduling system or in-person at Jastak-Burgess Hall.
A welcome addition to the LRC are the Language Conversation Tables where students of French and Spanish can gather without prior appointment to converse with native speakers in a relaxed and friendly setting that promotes acquisition through a gentle and authentic immersion experience. Spanish Sessions are held on Mondays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, on Tuesdays from 10:00 to 11:00, on Wednesdays from 12 pm to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 4 pm, on Thursdays from 11 am to 12 pm and on Fridays from 9:00 am to 11:00 am and 12:00 pm to 1 pm at the Language Resource Center (006 Jastak-Burgess Hall) while the French Sessions are held on Mondays from 1 to 2, on Tuesdays from 1 pm to 3, on Wednesdays from 9 to 10, and on Fridays from 1 to 2 at the same location. Students of all proficiency levels are welcome.
