Print

Description

"This is an important topic and one that is very timely given the nature of the research questions that have been explored. Anyone who wants to understand where Chinese education is headed should read this book. It is a must-read for those of us concerned with future impact of China's educational system not only on China but in the Asian Pacific region as well. The author does an excellent job of putting educational policy analysis into a Chinese historical and cultural context, as well as drawing some comparative perspectives with the Western legacy of higher education." ~ John N. Hawkins, Professor, Director, Center for International and Development Education, UCLA.

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.
