RI World Language Standards
Rhode Island has endorsed the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages as its state standard for World Language. ACTFL is the leading national organization in the development of World Language Standards, and these are equally applicable to all grade levels and languages. The standards were developed collaboratively by 17 professional language education organizations including modern and classical spoken and signed languages. The ACTFL revises the standards when necessary in keeping with current research in the field.
