World Languages Resource Center


Using the World Languages Resource Center

The World Languages Resource Center (WLRC) offers materials and resources to help students learn and practice the languages they are studying.  Resources available include computer software, audio activities, films, instructional videos, dictionaries, texts and other study aids.

Students enrolled in a 5-unit language class, such as Spanish 101 or Japanese 101, are required to do 16 hours of assignments over the course of the semester in the World Languages Resource Center.  Students work independently to complete the language assignments designated by their instructor.  Assignments may include the use of listening activities, videos, language software, or completing web-based activities. 

Students’ progress is tracked throughout the semester and a report of the time and work completed is forwarded to the instructor.  Students are encouraged to use their Palomar Identification Card (PIC) to borrow materials.

The World Languages Resource Center is located on the San Marcos campus in the Humanities building, first floor in room H-125.
