The Language Educator
ACTFL is planning to include a “focus topic” section for each of the next four issues of The Language Educator published in 2014 and 2015.
ACTFL continues to look for innovative and cutting-edge article submissions coming from varied perspectives related to the topic—reflecting different levels, languages, methods, backgrounds, opinions, experiences, and so on. The articles in this focus section will again be double-blind reviewed by two language education experts, in addition to other TLE and ACTFL staff.
