Educators, researchers, business leaders and representatives from federal and state governments are seeking ways to improve foreign language education and enhance graduates' opportunities in a global workplace. The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages -- among other groups -- has plans to launch a foreign language awareness campaign in 2014. The campaign will "raise awareness about how important languages are to a young person's future, and that it's good to learn and pursue them," said Martha G. Abbott, executive director of ACTFL.
