The Language Center is a multimedia computer facility supporting many of the more than 80 ancient and modern languages taught in various departments in Harvard's Faculty of Arts & Sciences. Leveraging digital storage and internet communications technology, the Language Center works to provide opportunities for Harvard language students to connect with a variety of language communities and cultural opportunities throughout the world. In addition to supporting practice opportunities for second language learning, we are available to support faculty efforts to incorporate specialized technology into their courses, language-related research by faculty and/or graduate students in GSAS, and media support for certain large General Education courses in the College.
The Language Center is a complete autonomous / group learning facility equipped with the latest multimedia equipment, a state-of-the-art computer lab, and two smart classrooms to facilitate quality language learning. As a small, free-standing department, we aim to collaborate closely with faculty to provide just the right technical support. When a particular project is too large for our resources, we can work with our colleagues in the Academic Technology Group (HUIT) to develop guidelines and campus-wide solutions.
