I just received this issue of The Language Educator, the magazine that goes to all 11,000+ members of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
You may recognize the college student on the front cover and this very photo--it's Liz Girten, one of my student bloggers from the Spring 2008 semester and current senior thesis student.
Darcy Lear and I wrote about Spanish & Illinois and the programs Darcy works with at the University of North Carolina. If you're an ACTFL member you will receive the magazine in the mail or you can read it on-line. If you're not, you can't read our article ("Staking Out a Middle Ground") on-line, but you can see other articles here.
