Promoting World Languages in the African-American Community

 

 

 

Let's meet in Nashville, TN November 17-19, 2017!

AAL holds its annual meeting in conjunction with the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) convention. The annual meeting allows AAL network friends to discuss innovative ways to spread world languages among African-Americans. The upcoming meeting will be held November 17-19, 2017 in Nashville, TN. Click on the link above for conference details. We hope to see you there.
