Our Services

Asian Language Learning Program

The ACC has developed a new format for our language classes. Rather than class levels in the past, we have categorized each class into two types:

Basic: Basic language skills, survival phrases, and introduction to culture (this replaces our beginners class)
Tutorial: Intermediate to advanced language tutorial and conversation (this replaces our intermediate/advanced classes and allows for more flexibility)

To register for free, please come to your first class 10 minutes early to complete the orange student registration form. Email with any questions.

Basic Japanese: Thursdays 5-6 p.m. (beginning Feb. 3)
Basic Korean: Tuesdays 4:30-5:30 p.m., Thursdays 4-5 p.m.
Korean Tutorial: Tuesday 5:30-6:30, Wednesday 5-6 p.m., Thursday 6-7 p.m. (beginning Feb. 2)
Mandarin Tutorial: Wednesdays 6-7 p.m., Thursdays 4:30-5:30 p.m.

Peer Support Service

The ACC offers free English tutoring and mentoring service to IU students, led by peer volunteers. These student peer mentors provide advice, support, and kindness to students who would like some guidance with cultural adjustment, campus life and schoolwork. These one-on-one meetings may also be an opportunity to practice conversational English and meet new friends. Walk-ins are welcome and no appointments are needed.

The tutoring schedule will be posted soon.
