The Language Learning Center at NMHU offers tutoring services in Spanish and American Sign Language to students who want to supplement their language learning outside of the classroom. Throughout the semester, tutors host “charlas” (conversation sessions) for those who want to exercise and improve their communication skills in Spanish or ASL. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the tutors, but are welcome to seek tutoring on a walk-in basis.
Aside from our tutoring services, the LLC houses many language learning resources that our staff can recommend to students who are interested in enhancing their knowledge of Spanish, ASL or other languages. Come and join us for a cup of coffee and get to know us and the center! We invite you to visit and take advantage of the many services our center has to offer!
