About the Language Learning Center

It is the mission of the Language Learning Center (LLC) to support the use of technology for the teaching and learning of world languages, literature and cultures.

The LLC embodies Willamette University's mission's “commitment to diversity” and view of “education as a lifelong process of discovery, delight and growth, the hallmark of a humane life.” With technology as a useful tool, the LLC supports the continuous lifelong process of learning languages and cultures.

As our world is becoming increasingly globalized, we aim to foster a community where diversity, multiculturalism and internationalism are valued and encouraged as a means to prepare students to enter a global world. The LLC aims to foster cultural awareness through the learning of languages, hosting of multicultural and international events and connecting Willamette students with students from around the globe.
