The Modern Languages Department at East LA College is committed to the teaching of languages, literatures, and cultures as an indispensable part of a curriculum that aims to foster linguistic and communicative competence in order to compete in a highly interconnected world. By adhering to student-centered teaching, we hope to develop the skills and instill the values necessary for students to pursue life-long learning as essential to their personal and professional development. Our programs promote multilingualism as a valuable tool necessary to operate effectively in our global context. Most importantly, our courses can serve as a platform that allows students to see themselves as stewards of the rich linguistic and cultural landscape that characterizes Los Angeles and its surrounding areas.
Due to the fluid nature of COVID-19, the Modern Languages Department is working remotely and the building will remain close until further notice. We are available by email, Google voice, and live chat Monday – Thursday 8:00am – 4:30pm and Friday 8:00am – 4:00pm.
