Language Tutoring

The Language Center is happy to provide free language tutoring to students enrolled in language classes on campus. Tutoring, conversation practice, and other language related support is available for ASL, Chinese, Filipino, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.

Individual & Group Learning

The Center strives to be a welcoming space to practice listening and speaking your new language. You can practice with classmates, other students studying your target language, native speakers, or our language tutors. While the Center is not able to provide quite study areas we do have many areas available for small group discussion and collaborative learning. Your campus group is also welcome to reserve one of our lab spaces for meetings or activities.

Collaborative Classroom Space

The Language Center has several spaces designed for collaborative teaching and learning. Room 305 is a computer lab and discussion space containing 24 student computing stations. Room 306 is a flexible space partitioned by a sliding wall providing workspaces accommodating 20-44 students. The small group discussion area in Room 306C can be reserved for group discussion, oral practice, or as an open interview space. The video conferencing space in Room 316 seats up to 12 people. It is ideal for video conferencing, discussion groups, small classes and student clubs

Study Abroad

Use the language skills you have worked so hard to obtain--travel abroad! Ask us about destinations and opportunities for travel and study abroad. We can help you connect with other CSU and campus resources.

All students are welcome to use the Language Center anytime, however priority will be given to students enrolled in foreign language courses.

Foreign Language Tutoring

The Language Center is happy to provide free language tutoring. Meet some of our language tutors:

Hi, I'm Glenda Luzon & I am the tutor for Filipino here at CSULB. I have my B.A. in English Education, and I am now pursuing a Single Subject Teaching Credential for English. My background in Filipino stems from being born in the Philippines and always being surrounded by those that speak Filipino. So this would classify me as a native speaker. I'm so excited for the opportunity to help students and further their knowledge of this amazing language!

Jeff Winters began studying Mandarin Chinese over thirty years ago and has been teaching the language and culture for the last twenty years. Professor Winters loves to travel abroad particularly in East Asia. He has lived, studied and worked in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. He is passionate about all things Chinese and eager to exchange learning strategies and experiences.

Hello everyone! My name is Pinying Chiang. I am getting my M.A. degree in Asian Studies with emphasis in Teaching Chinese as Second Language. Nice to meet you all. Feel free to ask me any Chinese questions.

Tutoring, conversation practice, and other language related support is available for ASL, Chinese, Filipino, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean and Spanish.
