You are invited to apply to participate in the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines Workshop for Southeast Asian Language Teachers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor April 20-21, 2018.
This two-day workshop will familiarize participants with the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines, ACTFL Rating Scale, and the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview Process, and the implications of proficiency for academic and professional purposes. It will include the application of proficiency for Southeast Asian language instruction and assessment, and how proficiency guidelines can be customized to address specific program needs and goals.
