Make learning a new language your goal!  In the 21st century, proficiencies in foreign languages and cultures are becoming crucial for the workplace and can give anyone’s career a boost.

To address this issue, the Emory College Language Center (ECLC) is in the process of posting self-learning resources for each language on its website. The resources are recommended and vested by faculty in the language studies departments. The self-learning resources on the web pages are for all curricular languages offered at Emory, ranging from online courses and apps, radio and TV stations, to dictionaries and exercises on grammar and vocabulary, and much more!
