Center for Applied Linguistics

Founded in 1959, the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) is "dedicated to providing a comprehensive range of research-based information, tools, and resources related to language and culture." Their site is a real pleasure to use and explore, and while some of the materials are only accessible to registered members, there are enough free resources available here to warrant several visits. From the homepage, visitors can browse a list of topics that include foreign language, testing and assessment, literacy education, and refugee integration. In each of these topical areas, visitors will find executive summaries of recently released research reports and information about ongoing research projects and educational initiatives. Additionally, the "Resources" area contains the CAL Digests, which are short reports that highlight current topics of interest related to language learning, cultural orientation, and linguistics. Recent titles have included "Foreign Language Immersion Programs: Features and Trends Over 35 Years" and "Cultural Orientation for Refugees".
