COVID19 update: The Language Resource Center is physically closed for the fall of 2020; however, most of our services are still available.
The Language Lab will continue to provide help and other assistance to students via email and Zoom. All Writing Centers (French, German, and Spanish) services will remain online until further notice. Students can continue to schedule appointments by using this link.
Please email Gisele El Khoury (the Director of the LRC) with whatever concerns or questions with which LRC might assist.
The Language Resource Center, located on the second floor of Carnegie Hall, features two language labs, a large collection of language software, foreign language films, music, games, foreign language dictionaries, and world maps. It is directed by Gisele El Khoury who, assisted by her student staff, strives not only to complement the course offerings of The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures but also to promote the innovative use of technology in the language classrooms and their attendant labs.
