Improving communication through better understanding of language and culture
CAL has a vital strategic role to play in strengthening the quality of teaching and learning of languages; creating access and equity for underserved groups in our diverse world; providing continued leadership in translating theory to practice to improve education; and strengthening the programs we develop to meet the fast pace of changing demands in our global society. CAL’s experience is that language and culture are central to meeting these demands. Through our resources and our research, we seek to lay the foundation for the next fifty years of addressing important societal issues that involve language and culture.
