Would you like to read authentic materials in foreign languages?

  • LRC has a 'Foreign Language Book Loan' bookshelf which contains authentic materials in various languages. It is the bookshelf filled with foreign language books and students will be allowed to borrow and return them on the honor system without checking them out. This system will provide the students easy access to authentic materials in foreign languages and will promote Internationalization on campus. Furthermore, it will provide the opportunity for students to get exposed to language experience outside of the classroom.
