It is Discover Languages Month and ACTFL is trying to make “Discover Languages” the hot topic among not just language educators but everyone in February---we need your help! Every day during February ACTFL will post a daily fact about language education to the ACTFL twitter account, and Facebook and  pages, you can help by resending that daily posting to all your friends, followers and contacts.

We have also established the Twitter hashtag #dlmonth to use for your tweets in the month of February. 

Don’t have a Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn account? Don’t worry.  You can find the facts on and send them out by e-mail to your friends and family.

We also have new this year a Discover Languages web button you can put on your web page, wiki-site etc.

We always have these features available to assist you in promoting language education:

  • Purchase Discover Languages logo products available on
  • Send your administrator, school board members, friends, family and others a Discover Languages e-card available at 
  • Use the Discover Languages...Discover the World logo on handouts and parents' information sheets.

Together we can make Discover Languages and language education the topic on everyone's minds for February and beyond!

We’ve got other things planned for February so stay tuned for updates!  You can add comments to this blog to share your ideas for making Discover Languages go viral and how you are planning to celebrate language education during February.
