Languages for All? Final Report
Can All U.S. Residents Have the Opportunity to Learn a Second Language?


A year-long collaborative effort with data and information collection as well as a national and international dialogue on language needs and capacity in the United States and other predominantly English-speaking countries resulted in a White Paper, Languages for All? and an International Forum held at the University of Maryland on September 2013. The Languages for All? initiative addresses whether access to a second language is necessary for, and can be made available to all learners or only the more privileged learners in these countries.

The intent of the initiative is threefold:

· Outline a vision and message that provides a solid base for unified efforts across the Language Enterprise, a coalition of constituents with vital interests in language representing education, government, heritage communities, industry, and overseas partners;

· Balance advocacy with empirical evidence; and,

· Propose a concrete action plan, with clearly defined strategic goals, objectives and milestones, for advancing language in the U.S. at all level of education, starting with K-12. 

The initiative's final report has been released to the public.
