Center for Second Language Research (CSLR)
The Center for Second Language Research (CSLR) was established in the fall of 1983 as a research unit of the Department of SLS. Its website is: http://www.hawaii.edu/cslr/
The Center is administered by the Center Director (a faculty member of the Department of SLS, with release time). CSLR staff is drawn from the Department of SLS and affiliated university departments and programs.
The work of the CSLR includes research, curriculum development, and teacher training projects in the area of second language education. Applied research and program implementation focuses on second language teaching/learning of indigenous languages (e.g. Hawaiian), heritage languages, and language varieties (e.g. Hawai‘i Creole English).
