Welcome to the Language Lab

The drop-in language tutors provide assistance in writing, speaking, reading, and understanding the languages taught at Reed. They can also help students to use the language-specific computing resources that are available in the language lab. To get the most of your sessions here, please remember the following:

  1. The tutors are available to help you find your own way through your assignments and goals at Reed. Having questions prepared helps them help you.
  2. We encourage everyone to work together while at the same time being considerate of the tutors and the other students.
  3. Please remember, as with everywhere at Reed, behavior in keeping with the Honor Principle is an expectation.
  4. Sign in before every visit. This lets us know which subjects students are seeking help with and aids us in scheduling tutors appropriately.

If there are ways we can make the Language Lab a more productive resource for you or if you have questions about language learning resources, please contact Beth Platte at
