Communicating in Khmer: Reading and writing for beginners (text + CD)


Communicating in Khmer: Reading and Writing for Beginners is a fundamental resource for the acquisition of modern Khmer for learners on all levels. The materials, comprising a book and CD, focus on the theoretical and practical aspects of the reading and writing system of modern spoken Khmer. Once the beginner learns the symbols of the system together with the sounds of language, s/he will have mastered the rudiments of reading Khmer. On the practical side, the learner will follow the materials as they have been systematized: s/he learns to read and write by applying herself/himself to texts and activities of progressive sophistication. The learner who completes the material will be well grounded in modern written Khmer. S/he will be well prepared for the challenge of materials of increasing complication, and will have added a new and invaluable dimension to her/his knowledge of language, literature and culture of this admirable people.

Manchu: A textbook for reading documents


As the first English-language Manchu textbook since Moellendorf's Manchu Grammar in 1892, this book offers students a tool to gain a good grounding in the Manchu language. Instead of having to depend on a formal Manchu class -- Manchu courses are only rarely taught at universities anywhere -- students will be able study Manchu at their speed and convenience. If studied in its entirety, the material in this book represents the approximate equivalent of a three-semester course (one year and a half).

All LRCs
Previous LRC
Next LRC
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.
