Here are our top resources and recommendations for furthering your success in your Modern Language courses!
We highly encourage you to connect with your professor and attend office hours first! Professor office hours are often posted on the front of the syllabus, and they can serve as a great entry point to discussing how you are doing in the class and how to make productive changes in the way you study moving forward. Also, check out the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at www.luc.edu/modernlang.
