The Modern Language Resource Center

The Modern Language Resource Center (MLRC), formerly known as the Scripps Language Lab, is a space for language students and faculty to study, practice conversation, review language skills, and use all the Center has to offer. Student can drop in for tutoring with the MRLC Language Consultants, watch a film from the Center’s film library, or just use the space for quiet study.

Students not enrolled in a language course are welcome to use the resources of the MLRC for independent study and cultural enrichment. While the center is designed primarily for individual student use, instructors and conversation group leaders may reserve the space as well.

Location: Scripps Humanities Building, Room 122
