    Vision

    "All Americans should be proficient in at least one language and culture in addition to English. To realize this vision, foreign language education must be part of the core curriculum at all levels and be treated as central to the education of all learners. In this context, foreign language educators must find unity of purpose and take needed action to create a recognized professional status." -Adopted by ACTFL Executive Council September 1997-
