New Student

Whether you are starting to learn a new language or are already in the process of learning one our library has several useful tools for students studying a foreign language. 

Our library is home to hundreds of foreign language films, books, magazines, and textbooks in over 20 different languages from all over the globe. All CU students, faculty, and staff are able to check out our resources for academic and personal use using their BuffOne Card.

Our student staff is also here to provide language specific support to those acquiring other languages. Most of our staff either speak more than one language or are the process of learning another language. So whether it be recommending books, games, magazines or films from ALTEC’s collection or simply practicing speaking another language with a patron, our student staff is dedicated to helping others acquire new languages.

If you would like to schedule a time to practice speaking a language with one of our student employees, feel free to email us at altec@colorado.edu to set up an appointment.
