FIPLV 2018 with ACTFL 2018 Registration and Housing now open!
ACTFL Annual Convention and World Languages Expo
(Incorporating the FIPLV World Congress)
The 2018 ACTFL Annual Convention and World Languages Expo of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) will be held November 16-18 with pre-convention workshops on Thursday, November 15 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year it will be incorporating the FIPLV World Congress as part of the convention, appropriately called Where Language Educators Meet. Please look at the Convention & Expo webpage (https://www.actfl.org/convention-expo)as well as this short video to give you a flavour of its international nature.
This year will be even more international than usual as it incorporates the FIPLV World Congress, which in 2015 saw participants from nearly 40 countries gathering in Niagara Falls, Canada for the wonderful WCML2015, hosted by CASLT/ACPLS, our Canadian member association. In November, over 8000 language educators are expected to descend on the exciting city of New Orleans in this lead up to Thanksgiving.
Registration and housing have now opened on the conference website. We are delighted to offer members of FIPLV member associations the same heavily discounted registration rate as ACTFL members. In order to access this, they will need to check their national association website or contact their office. Members of ACTFL will, of course, not need this code, nor will any of the U.S. FIPLV affiliated associations who are members of both ACTFL and IDV, FIPF, Mapryal or any other of our international unilingual member associations (though of course this offer is available to all other national members of such international unilingual associations).
Please also take advantage of the early bird registration, which is open until 11th July.
Visit the ACTFL website for more information and to register now.
See you in New Orleans!
The World Congress in Niagara Falls, organized jointly by the International Modern Language Teachers’ Federation (FIPLV), the Ontario Modern Language Teachers’ Association (OMLTA) and the Canadian Association of Second Language Teachers (CASLT), was a great success, with over 1200 participants.
