The Language Resource Center is the home for several less commonly taught languages. The center also organizes noncredit language maintenance conversation groups in a number of languages including Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. These conversation groups are primarily designed for professional school students who already have some background in the target language but who wish to maintain or enhance their speaking skills. Additionally, the Language Resource Center serves as the University's language laboratory and provides the Columbia community with a state-of-the-art digital language lab, video viewing facilities, and a multimedia Macintosh computer lab.
