LRC - Study Resources
The Language Resource Center makes available numerous study support resources for language learners, both onsite and online.

Students can find many valuable support materials at the resource counter in the LRC, including: dictionaries, grammar reference, and language learning strategy take-home materials.  The LRC enrichment collection includes films and games, many of which can be checked out overnight by students.  Students can also discover international TV programming while studying or relaxing in the LRC.

Online resources include audio materials associated with course textbooks as well as some support for writing such as those highlighted on the French Writing Page.  Lastly, students and faculty should not overlook the following selection of useful links along with several how-to-guides:
