Languages Canada, in cooperation with la Délégation du Québec à Boston, participated at the 2016 Annual Convention and World Languages Expo of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) from November 18 to 20.
The annual ACTFL Convention and World Languages Expo brings more than 6,000 language educators together.
The objectives of Languages Canada at the convention were to:
- Ensure the representation and visibility of Languages Canada and French language programs
- Network with representatives of the sector
- Negotiate agreements with local or international associations or schools
- Maintain ties with the Délégation du Québec abroad as well as the Canadian Consulate in Massachusetts
Languages Canada exhibited at the event with representatives of six French language programs (MILC-Montréal, Édu-Inter, ILSC Montréal, the Université de Montréal and YMCA Montréal) who engaged with those attending. Together, LC and DQB organized a reception ‘du Québec’ on November 19. This reception was a wonderful networking opportunity brought together hundreds of influential representatives of the French education sector in the United States and from around the world. Our participating members also presented on the francophone sector in Canada, reported on a study done by Student Marketing.
