Survey of Foreign Language Enrollment in the U.S

The survey of foreign language enrollment is part of an ongoing effort to further strengthen overall U.S. capacity in foreign language acquisition, particularly in those identified as key and strategic languages. State, district, and school administrators, foreign language coordinators, and teachers are all invited to participate in this survey. Your input is critical to the survey’s ability to accurately represent schools, districts, and states throughout the nation. The survey will help to keep stakeholders and policy makers at all levels of the educational system informed about the locations, levels, enrollments, and types of programs that constitute current K-16 U.S. educational capacity in foreign languages.

The survey will collect and analyze foreign language enrollment data to help inform and guide private, government, and education agencies and programs in future initiatives at the K-12 and higher education levels education in the United States today.
