African Language Role Play Cards are intended to provide task-based role play situations for teaching and testing proficiency in African languages. They are composed of blue, orange, and yellow cards. Each color indicates different levels of difficulty. Blue cards feature intermediate questions with simple social or transactional; orange cards feature advanced questions and elicit explanations, description, narration and reporting; yellow cards feature superior questions in the context of unfamiliar situations, and often requiring support of opinion and hypothesis.

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
