This page is dedicated to exploring ways to bring the community into the foreign language classroom and to take students out into the community through questions such as:

  • How can club activities advocate for foreign language learning, connect students with community resources, promote the school's foreign language programs, and provide students with opportunities to strengthen their communication skills and intercultural competence by serving others?

  • How can language teachers use extracurricular activities as tools for language learning and program advocacy?

  • How can teachers plan and facilitate meaningful field trips that will support student learning?

  • How can teachers organize effective study abroad experiences that will support student learning?
