Online Cafés: Intercultural Learning Communities
Audio-Visual

Description

This 25-minute video describes the Online Cafés project (nflrc.hawaii.edu/onlinecafes), in which language educators have worked together to design online cafés in which language learners in different locations can engage in intercultural exchange and language practice. The Online Cafés project is an adaptation of the Cultura model for intercultural exchange developed at MIT. Cultura offers ways for language teachers to access the “silent language of culture” (Edward T. Hall) by having their students engage in online intercultural exchanges with speakers of the target language.

All LRCs

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination

You may also contact each LRC individually by locating their directory information in the Meet the LRCs menu.
