ELAC Campus and Buildings

Language Lab


The Language Lab is a space dedicated to all ELAC students (credit and Non-credit) with services that support and promote second language learning and global cultural awareness.  We strive to provide interactive and independent activities that fit each student's learning style and individual needs.

As language is a skill requiring continuous use, we offer in-person and online tutoring support and weekly workshops, web resources, and software to keep your practice continual.


We offer One-on-One Tutoring and Group tutoring. Walk in or make an appointment (through the Penji app or directly from your Canvas page) for either a fifteen, twenty, forty, or sixty-minute session in all levels of English as a Second Language (ESL), American Sign Language (ASL), Chinese, French, Japanese, and Spanish. We have native speakers for Chinese, ESL, French, and Spanish tutoring. 

Workshops: One-hour workshops or review sessions that cover grammar and pronunciation practice.
