FLIC Services for Students

 

The Foreign Language Instructional Center, or FLIC, provides resources that support and enhance class instruction provided by the Department of Communication, Languages and Cultures at Coastal Carolina University.

The FLIC offers free tutoring in all languages offered at Coastal. A great team of talented language specialists are available to help students improve their foreign language skills. To help students overcome the challenges of learning a language, these friendly tutors enhance learning by offering either individual or group sessions. Because of the high volume of students enrolled in foreign language classes, it is highly recommended that students contact the FLIC to schedule an appointment with a language specialist.
