Intro to the Lab

The Bunker Hill Community College Language Lab provides students a high-tech learning environment and a knowledgeable tutoring staff to guide them with any aspect of language learning: from speaking, listening, and pronunciation to reading, writing, grammar, and punctuation.

Purpose of the Lab

The Lab’s objective is to help BHCC students improve their language skills. In addition to tutoring, the Lab offers many additional services, including conversation groups and workshops.

Lab Resources

The Lab currently provides students with 37 workstations, divided among two rooms – one equipped with wide-view screens for class instruction, and one devoted to tutoring support. Many of our staff members speak other languages including French, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, Somali, and Arabic.

Lab Services

Scheduled and Drop-In Tutoring

Students can make appointments to meet with our tutors, who will strive to assist with developing any and all academic skills related to language learning.

Foreign Language Tutoring

Many of our staff members speak languages other than English and can provide tutoring for students enrolled in any foreign language course offered at BHCC.

Lab Orientations

Class orientations can provide faculty members and their classes the opportunity to become more familiar with the resources offered in the Lab and to introduce the Language Lab to students. Please contact the Language Lab to reserve the Lab for class use.

Language Lab Web Links

Language Lab staff can provide free web links to help students improve their language skills in English and other languages taught at BHCC.
