Research has shown that in order to be successful in acquiring a second language, students need to interact in the target language in a purposeful way. This resource site was created in partnership with Middlebury Interactive Languages to provide schools, districts and educators with resources to engage students in K-12 second language acquisition.
Since learning a second language is crucial for both world language students and English Language Learners, this resource site contains infographics, white papers, classroom posters, articles and other resources for both world languages and ELL education. We hope you find it useful!
