Ted Mimms Foreign Language Learning Center

The Ted Mimms Foreign Language Learning Center serves the students and faculty of the University of South Carolina. Our mission is to provide assistance with any technology related aspect of language learning or teaching.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are observing shorter service hours (9 am - 5 pm, M-F).  If you need technical assistance please e-mail Bill Fairchild or Henning Liese

We provide hardware, software, spaces and services to help you learn or teach a language.

  • Need a video camera for a class project? We have that.
  • Would you like to check out an iPad for a couple of weeks to explore apps for language learning or for your linguistics class? Make an e-mail request! 
  • Are you supposed to find authentic materials on the internet for a paper in Italian? We can help you. 
  • Having trouble getting your computer to work with the online textbook? Bring it to the lab and we'll help you get it working.

To request computing or audio-visual equipment or assistance, please send an e-mail to indicating the room number, date(s), time(s), and equipment needed. Please be as specific as possible in your request. If you need special assistance in a classroom, please note that. We request that you provide 24 hours notice for equipment reservations.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
