Languages for Specific Purposes

The mission of Languages for Specific Purposes is to create and sustain a community of educators that can draw on each others' strengths to support this growing discipline. Building on the 40 years of work in this field that has established LSP as a mainstay across the curriculum, our goals are :
  • to evaluate current best practices in LSP pedagogies,
  • to establish a research agenda for the discipline, 
  • to consider new approaches to LSP pedagogies, including ones that reflect workplace/market needs

I am signing this form in support of forming an ACTFL Special Interest Group (SIG) on the topic of Languages for Specific Purposes.

Completing the form does not commit you to joining the SIG if it is formed.


What Our Members Are Saying

ACTFL provides opportunities at all levels in over 50 languages to dialog and exchange ideas for continually improving how we communicate language learning in our classrooms. Joining ACTFL exposes students and new teachers to the latest pedagogical methodologies beyond one’s classroom.
