On Friday, March 10th, our world language teachers will attend the Central States Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, which is held here in Chicago for the first time in 5 years. This is a wonderful opportunity for our WL teachers to attend workshops, hear from other teachers of world languages, and learn new methods for delivery of instruction. WL classes will be cancelled on Friday as a result.

Many thanks to the Friends of LaSalle for their generous donation to send our WL teachers to this fantastic event!
