Welcome to the Language Acquisition Resource Center

LARC is a San Diego State University-housed national Language Training Center (LTC) delivering language and culture training for active duty military, ROTC students, and reserve personnel to respond to the cross-service need for demonstrable communicative competence in world languages and cultures. LARC’s LTC enhances partners’ linguistic and cross-cultural mission readiness, providing language enhancement, conversion or initial acquisition training.

LARC also supports the teaching and learning of foreign languages in the United States through research, technology integration, and resource development. Particular attention is paid to less commonly taught languages, cross-cultural competence, language skills assessment, and teacher professional development.
