The Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition - [New Window] - One of the main objectives of the Less Commonly Taught Languages Project is to track information on locations in North America where students can study specific less commonly taught languages. Our database contains information on course offerings for over 300 languages at more than 2,000 colleges and universities in North America, and at elementary, middle and high schools. More than 25 Less Commonly Taught Languages are listed on the distance ed database of credit courses. We encourage the submission of summer courses and will list them promptly.

We are in the process of adding additional detail about each program we list, and will contact all programs, asking for cooperation in adding the information.

For each language at each institution, we provide (where possible) the name, address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of a contact person. Please be advised that the contact person is not necessarily the language teacher, but instead may be a department chair or administrator.
