Community Events

The Modern Foreign Language Education program hosts regular Foreign Language Education Community Events, which are open to all BU faculty, students, alumni, and school districts in the larger Boston community. Our recent series, “What does the research say?” seeks to connect practitioners and researchers to inform teaching practice and policies in our communities.
