National Network for Early Language Learning (NNELL)

NNELL invites you to join in the celebration of its tenth anniversary! Begun in 1987 by a small group of educators concerned with promoting bilingualism in young children, NNELL now has over 900 members. During 1997, NNELL is sponsoring several initiatives that will benefit the foreign language profession. A summer conference at Wake Forest University on the National Standards will address implementation of the standards at the K–8 level. At the November 21-23 ACTFL Conference in Nashville, NNELL is planning various activities to commemorate the accomplishments of the past 10 years. A special anniversary volume of articles addressing important questions in the field of early language learning, edited by Dr. Myriam Met, is being compiled. For more information on these activities, or for membership information and a sample copy of the journal Learning Languages, please write to: National Network for Early Language Learning, 4646 40th Street NW, Washington, DC 20016-1859.
