Created on Tuesday, 19 May 2020 07:33:31

The Pennsylvania Language Forum (PLF) is now available fully online on the PSMLA Webpage!

In this issue:

  • Introduction to the PSMLA Executive Council
  • Pictures from the Fall 2019 conference celebrating the 100-year anniversary!
  • Three articles on topics of gaming, community engagement and issues in World Language Education
  • Advocacy updates

Finally, beginning with the fall 2020 issue, we are excited to announce the incorporation of a peer-review process into our journal. Throughout the history of the Pennsylvania Language Forum, many scholars have contributed excellent original research and research-driven articles, and the addition of the peer review component will continue that long tradition. Check it out in the journal!
