This special issue of Foreign Language Annals was born out of the ACTFL Research Priorities Initiative, designed to (1) identify the key areas in which research is currently needed in foreign language instruction and learning to inform and improve classroom practice; (2) attract researchers to conduct research in these key areas; and (3) sponsor this research through funding, publication, and dissemination of research findings to the field and other stakeholders.

Foreign Language Annals is the official journal of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL).
