ScribeZone is an instructional tool that teaches language through transcription for multi-language and civilian use; it improves listening and transcription skills, grammatical knowledge, and reading skills through exercises built around authentic materials from a range of media sources.

ScribeZone was developed by NSA and SEELRC was the first non-governmental institution to produce instructional modules for this platform. To date, we have developed multiple modules (a total of 76 activities) for the following 13 languages: Bosnian, Chinese, Croatian, Kazakh, Montenegrin, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Spanish, Turkish, Uighur, Ukrainian, and Uzbek. Future activities will include not only the development of additional modules for existing languages, as well as the development of additional modules for Caucasian, Turkic, Baltic, and Slavic languages.

All of these materials produced by SEELRC are non-duplicative of existing materials and target the advanced and superior proficiency levels for language learners in LCTLs.
