What Our Members Are Saying

ACTFL has been a foundational support to me throughout my career. As a district world languages coordinator, the support I need from ACTFL is different from what I needed as a classroom teacher, but the community of learners that ACTFL provides each one of us has remained constant and faithful over time.
