If you want language learning that goes beyond what is commonly taught in the classroom and want to encounter authentic materials from all corners of the globe, the National Foreign Language Center has something for you. We administer STARTALK, a national network of summer language programs for students from kindergarten to college in several less commonly taught languages. Upper-level students will find a wealth of videos, texts, and activities to help them learn more than one hundred languages.
From STARTALK, a national network of summer language programs created in partnership with the federal government, to our lessons and materials in more than one hundred languages, the National Foreign Language Center has a wealth of programs, materials, and opportunities for teachers.
It is easy to find materials for you or your staff to learn more about French and Spanish. But what about lesser-known African and Asian languages? The National Foreign Language Center has materials to assess language levels and improve skills in more than one hundred languages from around the globe for professionals—and for anyone who loves learning languages. We also have training modules to help advance critical thinking and other domains.
