The World Languages Lab

The Language Lab is open Monday-Thursday 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Fridays 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., but individual tutor hours vary. Please call ahead to find out when the tutor for your language is available.

The USC Upstate Language Lab is dedicated to assisting both experienced and inexperienced language learners in Spanish, French and Chinese. We assist students with reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Because the language lab shares a computer lab with the Writing Center, tutors can offer help with accessing and understanding online lab activities on the textbook websites, like the Vista Supersite for world language courses. 

Who are the Language Lab tutors?

Tutors are USC Upstate students who have been selected to work in the Language Lab because of their outstanding language and interpersonal communications skills.

Why should I come to the Language Lab?

Students who come to the Language Lab benefit from practicing world languages with a fellow student who is both knowledgeable and service-oriented. By working with tutors, students have the opportunity to learn more about writing and to become better writers over time.

The Language Lab provides one-on-one tutoring sessions as well as less formal help with online activities to accompany language classes. Please bring your assignment instructions and/or login information for your textbook's online lab website. Appointments should be scheduled in advance, but walk-ins may be accommodated if tutors are available.

Tutors are very busy during midterms and the end of the semester. Please plan ahead and call the Language Lab at 864-503-5883 for an appointment!

Language Lab Hours
