Strategic National Planning and Coordination For the Less Commonly Taught Languages — a project for the national US/ED Title VI community

In a time of national and global need for an enlarged pool of speakers and learners of key languages around the globe, a strategic effort is needed in the United States to make those less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) available to learners at the post-secondary level. This requires collaboration among the nation's universities in deciding what LCTLs to offer, at what levels, when and where, in what formats, and what new learning materials will be required. These are the tasks of the e-LCTL Initiative.
