The Center for Languages uses technology to promote language-learning. Its main functions are:
- To help students develop their communicative skills—listening, speaking, reading, writing—in the target language through the use of audio/video and computer-based language learning programs.
- To help students develop a knowledge of other cultures and become global citizens!
- To provide students and faculty with a place to meet and interact in the various languages offered by SLCC:
American Sign Language, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Navajo, Portuguese, Russian, Samoan, Spanish, and Tongan.
- To offer free tutoring.
Students enrolled in a language course can receive assistance from tutors with native or near-native proficiency.
