Our Series

When it comes to advocating for language learning, we often only have a few minutes with decision-makers to make our case. At the same time, the ideas and experiences we share in our pitch can be the catalyst to get the support we need. The Elevating Language Learning Series is designed with this in mind, creating moments of connection between language students and multilingual professionals as they elevate conversations on the value of language learning and cultural exchange. Each conversation is a compelling advocacy tool showcasing the benefits of multilingualism in a variety of career paths, and highlighting the opportunities opened to students during their language learning journey.  We invite you to empower your students with these conversations and to educate decision-makers in your community.
