Cultural Exchange Corner
Currently the Language Center has a collection of 46 award-winning films in various genres including family, comedy, action, adventure, fantasy, and dramas. This collection primarily serves as classroom teaching aids or as resources for our English Clinic participants. The Cultural Exchange Corner is decorated similar to a Western-styled living room or family room tohelp students get used to English speaking environments.
Students are welcome to come to the English corner to join the foreign instructors on duty for English and intercultural communication. This allows students to gain confidence when communicating with foreigners in English.
