National Council of State Supervisors for Languages

What's New


The membership of the NCSSFL envisions a nation in which all individuals will be prepared for the demands of an interdependent world by attaining competence in more than one language and culture.



Discover LanguagesSponsored by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), Discover Languages is a national campaign for languages which builds on the momentum begun during 2005: The Year of Languages. This initiative is a long-term effort to raise public awareness about the importance of learning languages and understanding cultures in the lives of all Americans. The key cornerstones of the campaign include public awareness, advocacy and policy; research and practice; and resources and collaboration. As an organizational member of ACTFL, NCSSFL collaborates with ACTFL in a sustained effort to promote and provide resources and activities that can be used at the state and local level.
