Welcome to the IMC

Click here to give us feedback!

Language learning at PUC is supported by the International Media Center. The IMC promotes the benefits of learning other languages and cultures and facilitates the teaching, acquisition, and maintenance of foreign language skills and cultural awareness through the exploitation of technology and media. Hundreds of students a month take advantage of the IMC's features, some of which include:

  • Internet access via Ethernet
  • Course-specific materials and other general language reference materials
  • Music CDs and foreign films on videocassette and DVD
  • Audio and video software at each station
  • Printing capabilities
  • Educational recorders for oral assignments
  • Word processing and spell check for each language taught at PUC
  • Language Kits for Chinese, Japanese and Arabic
  • Textbook-related grammar and pronunciation software

The IMC also allows students to practice auditory, oral, visual, gesticular, and written language skills,
supplements classroom instruction, allows instructor guided language classes requiring technology, and
serves as an open lab for independent practice.
