Lead with languages
The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) launched an important campaign that focuses on raising awareness about the importance of learning another language besides English for American society. “Lead with Languages”, which was launched in late February.
It is “is a multi-year campaign aimed at reversing the nation’s language skills gap and making language learning a national priority. The campaign seeks to build awareness across the U.S. about the growing importance of language skills to a wide array of careers – and to our nation’s economy, national security and international standing – with the ultimate goal of supporting a new generation of Americans competent in other languages and cultures and equipped to compete and succeed in a global economy.”
