Professional Organizations

Professional organizations set standards for learners, teachers, and programs, but they also provide a lot of resources and give you ways to connect with others and share your work. 

Look at the big national and international organizations, but also look for your regional and state organizations for foreign language teaching, national and local organizations for each language (the “AATs” in the U.S.), organizations that are relevant to your context like CBHLS, and the national Language Resource Centers around the U.S., which each have a different focus.
