The CRE LEARNING website was created by Dr Bob BOLAND in 2001 to provide free language programs for aid workers travelling to Afghanistan, which at the time was the focus of an intense foreign aid effort.
Working to support Boston University Humanitarian projects, he developed freely available short, intense learning programs to help volunteers better communicate in local languages including Dari, Pashto and Uzbek. In time, working with native speakers from across the globe, CRE language programmes were expanded to cover 80 languages.
Alongside language programs, Dr Bob Boland developed and adapted the CRE method for application to a wide range of subjects including accounting, finance, management, leadership and personal health. All are available on this site.
