Multilingual Learning Communities

Relaunching in Autumn 2024!

Are you taking a reading- or writing-intensive class? Is English your second, third, or fourth language? Then consider joining the Multilingual Learning Communities (MLC) program.

What is MLC?

The MLC program aims to support international and multilingual students as they navigate American classrooms and cultures. The program enables small groups of students to meet weekly for an hour with OWRC tutors. Together, they work to decode academic and cultural norms, practice language acquisition, and develop collaboration skills. 

MLCs can cover many topics, including:

  • Reading difficult course texts
  • Participating in class discussions and activities
  • Understanding assignments/feedback
  • Interpreting classroom and cultural norms
  • Finding other resources and support services
  • Working collaboratively with instructors and peers
