“Celebrating Foreign Language Education: A Monterey Bay Symposium” was organized by students from the Teaching a Foreign Language (TFL) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) degree programs at the Monterey Institute, with the help of faculty and staff.
The symposium was held on Saturday, March 10 and was a great success, drawing over 160 participants from the Monterey Institute and other educational institutions in the Monterey Bay region. The full-day schedule offered opportunities for teachers, students, administrators and other professionals to discuss current trends and issues in the field of foreign language education. The event was a wonderful success and it appears likely that the 2012 event will be known as the first annual teaching foreign language symposium when it is repeated next year.
