The Language Research Centre (LRC) provides leadership in research into language acquisition, learning and teaching, the effective use of technologies, and policy-making. It is a central point of contact on language research between the University of Calgary and the world.

The LRC is a hub of language activity created to optimize the intellectual resources available from numerous departments on campus and to build bridges to our community.

The LRC offers a world-class environment for language education. Effective language education means a better understanding of how we acquire and process language, but also how language functions as part of culture and literature. The University of Calgary experience provides this level of integration to our students, facilitated by the best technology, the most advanced language-learning materials, and taught by internationally recognized scholars.
