Modern Language Lab

The Modern Language Lab provides lab sessions to reinforce classwork and language-tutoring services for day, evening and weekend students. The MLL also houses a small library of textbooks, dictionaries, videos and DVDs that students may use on the premises or arrange to borrow overnight.

What can you do in the Modern Language Lab?

Language Homework: Students without a computer &/or Internet access at home can do their online assignments for their language classes in the lab classroom, Room B207. The room is equipped with computers connected to the Internet, language software, and headsets with microphones.

Tutoring: Students can make an appointment or walk-in to B206 for language tutoring. Check the MLL tutoring schedule which is posted on the bulletin board outside B206.

Exemption/Placement Exams: Students who are proficient speakers of a language other than English can earn up to six Exemption Credits by taking the Modern Language Exemption/Placement Exam and passing an intermediate/advanced-level modern language or literature class. These credits are Liberal Arts Elective or Unrestrictive Elective credits. Also, these credits can be transferred to a four-year college, in which foreign language is often part of the requirements for your degree. See below for more information.

Modern Language Exemption/Placement Exam

About the Exemption/Placement Exam and Exemption Credits

If you are proficient in a language other than English, you may earn up to six additional credits by taking the Modern Language Exemption/Placement Exam and passing an intermediate/advanced-level modern language or literature class (Please note that students pursuing a degree in the Pathways framework are eligible for only up to three exemption credits.). These Exemption Credits are Liberal Arts Elective or Unrestricted Elective credits (Note: If your major does not have Liberal Arts Elective or Unrestricted Elective, you may not be able to use these credits for your degree).
