By promoting research on language pedagogy and offering programming relating to the teaching and learning of languages, CLS helps to facilitate communication among language faculty at Brown and to encourage students to pursue the innovative language-learning opportunities Brown makes available. 

The CLS is also home to the following languages: ASL, Arabic, EINT, Hindi, Urdu, Persian, Turkish, Yoruba and Nahuatl.
