About the NFLRCs

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first National Foreign Language Resource Centers (NFLRCs) at US universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Today, there are sixteen NFLRCs, supported by grants under Title VI of the Higher Education Act, creating a national network of resources to promote the teaching and learning of foreign languages. Led by nationally and internationally recognized language professionals, NFLRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for teachers and instructors, and conduct research on foreign language learning.

While some centers concentrate on specific language areas and others on foreign languages in general, all share the common goal to develop resources that can be used broadly to improve foreign language education in the United States.
