Print

Description

This is a new edition of the book, co-published by NEALRC and Changjiang Publishing Group, China. This bilingual text by Zhou Youguang (in Chinese) with English translation by Zhang Liqing makes it easier for English speakers to gain advanced level skills in East Asian languages. It also exposes learners at or above intermediate skill levels to the vocabulary and discourses of academic disciplines and provides entries into discussions with oral and written presentations in these concentrations. This concise treatment of a field is done by an excellent scholar with outstanding English translation. This book offers an overview of a particular situation regarding the development and problems concerning Chinese languages and scripts. John DeFrancis recommends in the Foreword to this text: "This fact-filled but by no means dry compendium, the contents of which are easily accessible thanks to a good, detailed index, deserves a place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the languages and scripts of China." This is an ideal book for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses dealing with Chinese languages and scripts.

Pathways V. 09 Eat Shandong From Personal Experience to a Pedagogy of a Second Culture
Print

Description

This book examines the "celebratory," ritualistic and pragmatic functions that Shandong yanxi, or banquets, serve in games of gaining social status in the contemporary Shandong social milieu. Yanxi are a highly ritualized form of performance in which enormous amounts of social capital, and energy are invested. Shandong yanxi are conducted to celebrate such important social occasions as weddings and engagements; festivals; birthdays; sending a friend or relative off on a journey, and welcoming a traveler home from a journey. Although highly festive in nature, these performances play a more serious and pragmatic role in Shandong society as a field of play for the game of gaining social status. In 2013, a second print was produced to meet the need of the readers.

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
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.
