Following interest by teachers and scholars of Cantonese, an organization was formally established in January of 1994, with the help of the National Foreign Language Center in Washington, D.C. and the Organization for Less-Commonly Taught Languages.  The organization was active for some seven or eight years afterwards. With renewed demand and broad interest, we are relaunching the Cantonese Language Association (CLA) with this new website and a provisional board of directors. This website includes a list-serve for discussing topics of mutual interests as well as notes on materials and scholarship. We invite you to join and support CLA by joining and helping to provide content for the site.
