NNELL Panel: Rethinking FLES Programs for the 21st Century

3:30 - 2:15pm

Washington Convention Center, Room 146A

Presented at: ACTFL 2019

Join experienced elementary educators as they explore Foreign Language in the Elementary School (FLES) program outcomes and future directions. The panel will address an issue suggested by last year's participants: What are the major benefits of a FLES (foreign language in the elementary school) program in addition to language proficiency outcomes? The panel will engage the audience in a lively discussion, using outcome data and comparisons with past programs, to explore optimal models for the 21st century. Bring your questions and observations.
