The 2019 conference theme is Languages for All: Envisioning Language Learning Opportunities for Every Learner. The program will include in-depth three and six-hour pre-conference workshops, featured presentations by distinguished speakers, a variety of sessions, along with our #techlab and Research Roundtable, and “Best of State” sessions.

Unique Course Offering
The Department of World Languages at the University of North Texas (a public Tier-1 research institution) is very excited to share that we will be offering our first, brand new, one-of-a-kind, online course this Fall 2019.
WLLC 3310, the Best of French Pop Culture is an advanced elective, taught in English, with no prerequisite, focusing on various aspects of French Pop Culture (including food, fashion, cinema, stereotypes, music, etc.). Since this is an online course, students do not have to be Texas residents to be eligible, and the class offers a lot of flexibility to students looking into adding a couple of hours to their degree. All students are eligible (they do not have to be French minor/major). The course currently has two sections: one for in-state and one for out-of-state students, and students can start enrolling today!
This course will be perfect for students interested in French Culture (whether they are studying the language or not—since this is taught in English, knowledge of French is absolutely NOT required), or curious about how people live and what young people their age like across the ocean.
