What is the Language Summit?

The language summit is a venue where language teachers can meet to discuss best practices for language teaching and successful learning activities. This event is an opportunity to share what works in your classroom, from vocabulary activities, grammar explanations and cultural activities. All teachers have a voice and an opportunity to learn, to share and to meet educators from their own language teaching.

There will be a representation of all commonly languages taught in secondary school. So far we have registered teachers from the following languages: Spanish, ASL, French, Chinese, German and Arabic. Depending on the enrollment these languages will be subdivided by language levels (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced).
