Center For Language and Lifelong Learning

Brief History

The Center for Language and Lifelong Learning opened its doors on November 21, 1989. It was then called the Center for English Language Learning. A pet project of the late Br. Andrew Gonzalez, FSC, President Emeritus of De La Salle University and former Secretary of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports, it originally aimed to offer courses in English as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL/EFL) to adult learners and other professionals.

The Center for Language and Lifelong Learning is a non-academic unit of the College of Education, De La Salle University, which caters to clients who are interested in improving and honing their English Language proficiency in the four basic communication skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing.

The Center for Language and Lifelong Learning also upholds the principle emphasized by the DLSU Br. Andrew Gonzalez College of Education: that students, particularly those in the graduate school, are expected to do independent and original work backed up with appropriate citations and adopting the required style of documentation. Nevertheless, it also recognizes the fact that certain students need further assistance to meet such expectations and to make their theses or dissertations acceptable and worth reading. In its desire to provide this needed assistance, CeLL now offers editing services in APA and/or grammar and organization at considerable rates.

The Center is proud of its teachers who are specialists in their fields, particularly on English Language and its application. All language teachers are carefully screened and their continuing education is mandatory. This makes the Center the best of its kind on this side of the world.
