Description

For two decades, Portland Public Schools (PPS) (Portland, Oregon) has offered a Mandarin Dual Language Immersion Program with preschool and kindergarten entry points. In the last decade, PPS has partnered with the University of Oregon to build a well-articulated K–16 Mandarin immersion and world language program. Our ethnography study, funded by The Language Flagship, examines the historical development of the PPS program, sets forth key components of the PPS model that other districts may replicate, and examines catalysts and disruptors to the language immersion model.

LingroToGo
Mobile & Tablets

Description

Designed by gamers and linguists, LingroToGo utilizes game-based play to inspire users to learn Spanish on their mobile device. Game-based play teaches learners to tolerate the ambiguity needed for language learning and rewards them for time on task, accuracy, speed, and problem-solving abilities. The more time learners spend with language, the more they learn! LingroToGo is designed to make that time as productive and enjoyable as possible. Each topic gives learners the skills they need to carry out a specific communicative task in Spanish, and deep thinking helps create the automaticity needed for greater fluency in the language. Learning Spanish in context helps users understand how meaning is constructed and conveyed based on much more than word choice. How Learners Play: - Watch videos. Play games. Play games. Watch videos. It's completely up to learners. They pick the topics, the tasks, and the way they learn best. - Earn coins and XP to level up, unlock great new content, boosts, and other fun prizes. Can learners get all the gold medals, or are they satisfied with silver and bronze? - Play each game once, twice, or more. Remember, the more learners practice, the better they will be at Spanish! Co-created with LingroLearning, LingroToGo is based on the latest learning science and inspires learners to master the second most spoken language in the world.

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.
