WHO: Joseph Danks, Director of Research at the University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL), scholar, author and dean emeritus of the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University.

WHAT: CASL Research Projects on Language Learning and Cultural Understanding presentation at the 2007 Interagency Language Roundtable Showcase: Advances in Language Learning and Cultural Understanding

WHERE: George Washington University’s Marvin Center Auditorium

CASL (casl.umd.edu) has several research projects on adult language learning and the use of cultural knowledge in government work. Dr. Danks’ presentation will describe the following projects, drawing specific application to the work of various government agencies:

• The Linguistic Correlates of Proficiency project – aimed at improving the teaching, learning and testing of high-level listening and speaking abilities in critical foreign languages (Arabic, Korean, Persian, and Russian).

• Another project will provide a thick description of the language-learning environment of military linguists in the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLIFLC) Basic Course, paying special attention to the role of class size and technology use in class and in self-study assignments.

• The Hi-Level Language Aptitude Battery project will develop a test that predicts successful language learning by adults, particularly learning of difficult languages, and particularly to very advanced proficiency.

• The Cultural Skills Guide project will bring into immediate use language and cultural resources to support operational needs for U.S. Military Attachés.

The ILR members will present on the themes of: language policy issues, translation and interpretation, training/enhancing four skills proficiency, assessment, technology/distance education and other relevant research topics. The complete conference program is available online.
