Abstract: The integration of foreign language learning with service-learning has continued as a growing trend through the 1990s into the 21st century. Tutoring programs can offer unique opportunities for addressing the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning (1999). This article details one flexible curriculum-based model that promotes especially the fifth goal area of communities. A course involving collaboration between an institution of higher learning and local schools allows undergraduate students with diverse languages and competencies and a wide variety of academic and career interests to work with pupils from grades 1 through 12.
