Abstract

Foreign language enrollments continue to make healthy increases in public schools across the country, according to the seventeenth in a series of surveys conducted first by the Modern Language Association (1958–1970and then byACTFL (1974-present). The following report summarizes the responses received from a questionnaire sent to officials in each state and the District of Columbia. Forty-eight states responded; however, because not all states collect data, and some collect it in inconsistent formats, enrollments were estimated for several states in whole or in part. The survey was conducted pursuant to a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, International Research and Studies Program. The full report is available from ACTFL Headquarters or can be downloaded from the new ACTFL Web Site (http:www.actfl.org).
