Our Story

The National African Language Resource Center, at Indiana University Bloomington, was established in September 1999. It is a federally funded, non-profit national foreign language center dedicated to the advancement of African language teaching and learning in the United States.

Our Mission:

The Center's mission is to serve the entire community of African language educators and learners in the United States by sponsoring a wide range of educational and professional activities designed to improve the accessibility and quality of African language instruction. The Center encourages a variety of pedagogical approaches to accommodate learner diversity, and advocates the integration of language and culture learning and the acquisition of fluency in these areas. It facilitates dialogue among teachers, learners, and administrators from a wide variety of cultural and institutional perspectives, while also promoting the profession of African language teaching.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to provide resources and training to enhance the teaching and learning of African languages. While doing so we plan to establish and maintain networks among African language teachers, professional language teacher associations, and other foreign language centers, coordinate African language teaching and learning resources available in the United States, disseminate information and materials on the teaching and learning of African languages, and evaluate and promote African language instructional programs.
