A center of coordination and resources for the more than fifty languages taught at Yale, the Center for Language Study (CLS) provides leadership and support for pedagogical innovation, professional development (including workshops and informal seminars offered in collaboration with language programs), and implementation of new methodologies in language instruction and learning. Through the DILS program, the CLS also offers opportunities for independent language study.

The CLS is also a source for a vast range of technological services, guidance, and assistance, such as technology-equipped classrooms, foreign language computing labs, multimedia materials development, and audio/video distribution. The focus of the CLS is not only on providing technological resources, but on ensuring that these resources are well-supported and efficiently integrated into the overall language learning experience.
