Using Technology for Outreach to High School Students

Discussion Leader: Robert L. Davis
Affiliation: University of Oregon

One of the most pressing problems facing the less commonly taught languages is low enrollment. Furthermore, students typically begin to study LCTLs relatively later, so there are often too few students to even justify offering advanced level instruction. One solution is to introduce high school students to LCTLs, and pique their interest in the languages and the lands where they are spoken.
