South Asia Language Resource Center

South Asia Language Resource Center

The South Asia Language Resource Center (SALRC) is a collaborative effort funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education's International Education and Graduate Programs Service. The Language Resource Center at the University of Chicago is one of fifteen nationwide that exist to improve the capacity to teach and learn foreign languages effectively. SALRC primarily focuses on the needs concerning South Asian language pedagogy in American universities.

The South Asia Language Resource Center is engaged in the following major tasks:

* Create and disseminate new resources for teaching and research on South Asian languages, mostly via the World Wide Web;
* Offer advanced courses in language pedagogy in conjunction with the South Asia Summer Language Institute;
* Develop a shared infrastructure for delivery and archiving of South Asia language resources; and
* Share infrastructure and approaches with other institutions having overlapping language interests, such as other Language Resource Centers, most notably those for the Middle East and Central Asia.
