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

In an effort to promote the healtyh and safety of staff and students the Language Center will be closed for the remainder of the semester. Language tutoring is available online.

My name is Emily Wysocki and I am currently an Undergraduate in German and International Studies and minoring in Communication Studies. I have attended the Portland State University's Deutsche am Pazifik in Portland, Oregon and I spent the Spring 2019 semester studying abroad in Cologne, Germany. Now I am a tutor here at the Language LAB to help students improve their German speaking and reading skills while preparing to apply for the German graduate program, here at CSULB.

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.

An enthusiast of the French language and culture, Ame is always eager to help or converse with you. She is a French MA and credential student who has lived and taught in France, so she understands "the strugs" in language learning. Make your learning experience easier and come see her!

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