Language and Cultural Center (LCC)

MISSION

The Language and Cultural Center’s (LCC) broader mission is to serve as a resource for educational services in second-language acquisition and cross-cultural literacy.

The goal of LCC is to address the demand for high-quality English language programs for clients organizations. In light of the strong demand for high-quality English second language acquisition (L2) programs, the Language and Cultural Center will develop and facilitate L2 programs that promote best practices in the field of second language acquisition.

L2-Online

LCC provides a complete online program to university and organizational clients. Our instructors teach your students American English in Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency (CALP), academic language acquisition in English listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar. Academic language acquisition includes critical thinking skills such as comparing, classifying, synthesizing, evaluating, and inferring in context. Our programs are customized to the client's instructional needs. 

L2-Workforce

LCC provides instructional services to ensure that Vocational English as a Second Language acquisition, basic native-language and English literacy assessment, and accent modification can be provided to its corporate clients when needed without significant delays; in a consistent and quality driven manner; and at price points that are reasonable and flexible in design to meet the needs of small, mid-sized and large companies. Language instruction for the workforce is Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills (BICS), which are language skills needed in social and workplace conversations. In the case of L2-Workforce, vocabulary and content may be specific to the client's industry.

Tours to the USA

As a Study Abroad destination for our international partners, our staff works to customize academic tours and packages designed to match your academic and cultural needs. Our professors will provide academic seminars and our staff will take you on local field trips to bring American examples to apply to your studies. Our local culture is rich with Native American traditions, small-town festivals, while the city life is nearby. LCC will facilitate the tours and assist with logistics such as the academic program, flights, hotels, and meals. Academic content of the tour will be designed and delivered by Northeastern State University faculty.
