About the NFLRC

The goal of the National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) is to expand the nation’s capacity to teach and learn foreign languages effectively through research and materials development projects. The primary audience for most NFLRC endeavors is language instructors and applied linguists involved in these languages. However, NFLRC projects are intended to have implications for the teaching and learning of all languages, with results being disseminated to the larger educational community through publications, summer institutes, conferences, workshops, symposia, online learning events, etc. The NFLRC also conducts outreach to governmental agencies, language and area studies centers, and others concerned with strengthening the nation’s capacity in this field. Visit the sections below for more details.
