Competency-Based Learning in the World Languages Classroom:
Becoming Globally Competitive through World Language Proficiency
According to the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), "Language and communication are at the heart of the human experience. The United States must educate students who are linguistacally and culturally equipped to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. This imperative envisions a future in which ALL students will develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language, modern or classical."
