Did you know that February 2018 is Lead with Languages Advocacy Month?
Launched earlier this year, Lead with Languages is a national, multi-year initiative to prioritize language education. Ultimately, our mission is to create a new generation of Americans competent in other languages and cultures and fully equipped to compete and succeed in a global economy. And to accomplish this goal, we need help from you-the educators who advocate each day both from your classrooms and beyond!
Together, we'll be dedicating the entire month of February to spearheading and celebrating advocacy efforts across the country. Be sure to stay tuned @LeadWLanguages on social media for more details as the date approaches.
