How CLEAR Helps Students
The Center for Language Exploration, Acquisition and Research(CLEAR) promotes and facilitates AU students' acquisition and enrichment of language skills and cultural competency by
providing language coaching free of charge to students currently enrolled in a language course taught at American University
hosting language-related cultural events throughout the academic year
advancing the professional development of the World Languages and Cultures faculty
curating a growing collection of language-related resources
developing and administering language assessments
To fulfill its mission, CLEAR's patron-focused staff are here to connect language coaches and students, ensure the positive enhancement of the language learning experience through the use of technology, and to foster an environment which emphasizes global sensitivity and values the multicultural diversity of our campus.
