About Language Partners:
The LRC Language Partners provide first-level academic support to language students of all abilities and level of study in order to help students improve their skills and/or course grade. There is no charge to use the LRC's tutoring services. Language Partners for French, German, Japanese and Spanish have a set schedule, are available for drop-in or by-appointment sessions, and can meet students desiring a one-time session or sessions on a weekly
basis. Students needing any level of support should first speak with their professor and then contact the LRC. Depending on student needs and Language Partner availability, the LRC may refer students to the Academic Success Center after reviewing the student's class schedule and/or need for supplemental tutoring beyond what the LRC can provide.
Language Partners are among the very
top student majors within their
language (or native speakers) and have been hand-selected by their professors.
Students meet with a
Language Partner to work on whatever area the
student wants to focus on during the session -- from the first semester
student who needs help with basic pronunciation principles to the
intermediate student who wants to review the subjunctive or go over the
finishing touches on a paper. Language Partners also love to talk in
their target language! Advanced students are encouraged to meet up with
a Language Partner
as a peer and fellow language major to simply chat about weekend plans
or exchange study abroad stories.
