The Alliance for Language Learning and Educational Exchange (ALLEX Foundation) was founded in 1988 with the primary mission to advance global understanding and intercultural exchange through education. ALLEX believes that learning a foreign language is the gateway to understanding and appreciating other cultures, and that training expert language teachers goes hand in hand with propagating foreign language study.
ALLEX is supported by the Chinese and Japanese Teacher Training Consortium, comprised of Washington University in St. Louis, Cornell University, Ohio State University, and Portland State University.
The ALLEX Foundation has had a profound effect on the quality and quantity of language programs in the U.S. ALLEX has trained over 800 teachers of Chinese and Japanese, established or enhanced more than 200 university-level East Asian Language programs, and graduated numerous trainees who have gone on to careers in academia.
