[03/28/20]   Thank you ACTFL (see link below)! This is just one of the many resources being made available for teachers right now, free of charge. Personally, I have taken advantage of a couple of webinars recently, and sites like inthinking.net and thisislanguage.com are offering free subscriptions. These sites helped me immensely as I transitioned to teaching via Zoom.

Le Grand Concours and testing for the Seal of Biliteracy are working with teachers if you still want to administer these tests.

We hope everyone stays safe and healthy!
