The Language Center

The USC Language Center is dedicated to helping students learn languages and understand cultures from all areas of the world. In cooperation with language and literature departments and other campus affiliates, the center provides interactive multimedia resources, audio and video materials, and classrooms equipped with the latest technology. Language Center staff arrange for conversation partners in many different languages and supply programming for language staff development. Founded in 1997, the Language Center is located on the third floor of the Mark Taper Hall of Humanities. It houses the Fletcher Jones Language Commons with 55 computer workstations and an International Lounge, as well as a computer classroom and small group conversation rooms.

The College Language Center's facilities and resources are available to the entire USC community. Priority use, however, is reserved for students and instructional staff of modern languages.
