Description

Kazakhk News is part of the Central Asian News Project which produces listening and reading exercises for students of Central Asian languages at the intermediate and advanced levels. The goal is to help students build their listening skills, broaden their vocabulary and grammar, and deepen their understanding of the cultures and politics of the various countries of the region. For selected languages, CeLCAR produces original texts—both reading and listening--based on a variety of contemporary sources. The texts are supplemented with a glossary, background information, and a number of exercises, including multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, drag-and-drop, and open-ended questions. For other languages, CeLCAR adapts an already-existing text taken from a Central Asian news agency or world broadcaster. In these cases, the texts are read by a native speaker who also creates the accompanying exercises and glossary. These texts are generally aimed at more advanced learners. In all cases, CeLCAR will provide information on the original source of the texts.

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.
