The Learning Center is a classroom for INTO OSU classes as well as an open learning/computer center for INTO OSU and OSU international students. We are located on the 1st floor of the ILLC building and have a variety of resources to help you improve your English skills.
Our staff is here to help you—we hope you will come visit us!
Learning Center Open Hours
There are classes that meet in the Learning Center during much of the day and it is not open to other users at those times. Please see our schedule for times we are open.
Our computers are equipped with a variety of software programs to help you improve your English and typing skills. You may also use our computer lab to type assignments, record speaking assignments, and use the internet. You may use the Learning Center printer to print assignments for classes; printing costs 5¢ per page and is charged to your ONID account.
The Learning Center’s Delicious page also has links to a variety of online activities to help you improve your English.
Learning Center Library
We have a variety of books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs to help you improve your English. Novels, DVDs, and some TOEFL materials can be checked out for use at home.
WRAP (Writing and Pronunciation) Appointments
We have trained WRAP assistants available to help with you with your writing and pronunciation. You can sign up for 25-minute appointments in the evenings, or just come to the Learning Center for help during daytime walk-in WRAP hours. Please do not make more than one appointment per week.
Please note that WRAP assistants help you with writing by teaching you tools to improve your own writing by focusing on pre-writing, organization, thesis and content development, sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and format. This is not an editing service.
