When I took Foreign Languages in school, I had to engage in conversation, read and comprehend materials, write responses and complete some listening comprehension activities using a tape recorder. The standards above are found on the <http://www.actfl.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3392> website. How do you meet today's Communication Standards for Foreign Language Teachers?
