National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) bannerThe National Foreign Language Resource Center (NFLRC) at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa is dedicated to improving foreign language learning and teaching in the U.S. and has particularly distinguished itself in its focus on the less commonly taught languages of Asia and the Pacific. Established in 1990, NFLRC is the oldest of only fifteen Title VI-funded Language Resource Centers across the US. It draws on Hawai‘i’s geographic and multiethnic location in the center of the Pacific and the rich expertise of the university’s College of Languages, Linguistics and Literature, which offers courses in over 30 world languages and contains internationally renowned departments in linguistics and second language studies.

NFLRC conducts professional development events for language professionals and engages in high-impact research and materials development projects among its main activities. These projects have implications for the teaching and learning of all languages, and their overriding goal is to develop prototypes for language professionals to apply broadly as resources to improve foreign language education nationally.
