Purdue University is a top destination for international students. Purdue Language and Cultural Exchange (PLaCE) supports those international students who learned English as a second language, and who will benefit from language and cultural support as they adjust to life at a U.S. university.

In PLaCE courses, you'll develop:

  • Language skills through balanced learning across core language strands of meaning-focused input and output, language-focused learning, and fluency development.
  • Intercultural awareness by learning to recognize your own cultural traditions and to understand, appreciate and participate in other cultural traditions.

Our mission at PLaCE is to provide a strong instructional and assessment program. We'll help you develop the academic, linguistic and cultural competencies needed to participate in university life and to compete for graduate school and employment opportunities.
