YLC's New Home

A year ago at this time 175 McKenzie, the new home of the Yamada Language Center, was in the midst of demolition; only 4 months later classes were meeting there, group projects were getting planned, and language circles were forming. We're still a bit dazed by how quickly our new space was transformed.

But we've quickly fallen in love with it. YLC is now located on the ground floor of McKenzie Hall, with our five wonderful new classrooms at the north end, our student center and main office at the south, and cozy spots in between for studying, chatting, and gazing upon the Zen garden (which is our next project). We think the vibrance of language and culture learning has br0ught some warmth and emotion to the rawness of McKenzie's brutalist architectural design.

Come visit! We're always looking for ways to make language teaching and learning more enjoyable and meaningful. Whether you're looking for a Spanish film for the weekend, a conversation partner for Korean, or a comfortable place to study your French, please drop by and say hello.
