World Languages Meet

The primary goal of this event is to encourage a passion for learning other languages within the Southeast Pennsylvania High School community. We aspire to achieve this goal through competitions informed by the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Language (ACTFL) National Standards for Foreign Language Education.

Our hope is that teachers, "coaches," and their students will use these competitions and the leadership resources provided for team preparations to encourage the exploration and development of the ACTFL 21st Century Skills of:

Communication
Collaboration
Critical Thinking & Problem-Solving
Creativity & Innovation
Information Literacy
Media Literacy
Flexibility & Adaptability
Initiative & Self-Direction
Social & Cross-Cultural Skills
Productivity & Accountability
Leadership & Responsibility
