Advocacy

Be an advocate for Language Education

ACTFL is working to raise public awareness on the benefits of language learning in order to influence the direction of US education. Our goals include: maintaining existing language education programs, diversifying instruction to new languages, and reaching more middle and elementary school students with foreign language instruction. Now, more than ever, advocacy in support of language education is critical.
