The Fletcher Jones Language and Culture Laboratory represents a unique space within the Pitzer community, one guided by a strong commitment to programs in both language acquisition and cultural learning.  Our mission is guided by the belief that language learning, cultural understanding, and cross-cultural dialogue are crucial components in the education of a global citizenry.  Our approach to language and cultural learning is rooted not only in dialogue across borders but importantly through an abiding connection to the diverse local communities of Southern California.
