ACTFL- The Benefits of Language Learning

What the Research Shows about the Benefits of Language Learning

In this age of accountability in education, policymakers and administrators, as well as parents, are increasingly demanding to know what research studies show regarding the benefits of language learning. As a service to our members ACTFL has compiled the research and presented it in an easy to use format on our Web site.
Specifically the information addresses:
How does language learning support academic achievement?
How does language learning provide cognitive benefits to students?
How does language learning affect attitudes and beliefs about language learning and about other cultures?
So, the next time you are asked for this information – don't panic – remember that ACTFL has done the work for you!
