The Foreign Language Instructional Center (FLIC)

The mission of the Foreign Language Instructional Center is to provide instruction in the Less Commonly Taught Languages (LCTLs) in order to help meet the need for critical language acquisition in the United States. Customized instructional materials have been developed by FLIC in Akan-Twi, Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Russian, Yoruba as well as Haitian Creole which, along with Spanish, is taught in response to the needs of growing Haitian and Hispanic community. In addition to advancing language proficiency, instructors at FLIC emphasize cultural understanding. Students are exposed to the traditions and norms of the countries where the foreign language is spoken so that they may put the language in practical context for interaction with native speakers either in the United States or in the respective world regions. FLIC has created a state-of-the-art classroom with the most advanced instructional technology available.
