Celebrating Foreign Language education at MIIS

The Monterey Institute of International Studies will host “Celebrating Foreign Language Education: A Monterey Bay Symposium,” its second annual student-organized conference on language teaching and learning.

The symposium will take place Saturday, March 30, and it will feature local teachers, students, administrators and other professionals from throughout the Monterey Bay area. The conference will examine innovative ways of thinking about foreign language education, with particular focus on using technology as a tool to enhance language learning outcomes. The conference will also address the importance of intercultural competency for achieving language fluency.

Participating speakers include representatives from local institutions such as Stevenson School, North Salinas High School and the Defense Language Institute. The symposium will provide a venue for students in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Teaching a Foreign Language programs at the Institute to share ideas with local teachers, bringing their learning outside the classroom and into real-world practical applications.
