As I sit here at the airport waiting to return to my life as a part-time grandma, part-time professional development provider, I am so excited about all the people I met and all the new ideas that were presented at this conference. Thanks to all who presented as well as to those who reached out to me and made me feel so special! For those who weren’t able to attend this year’s conference, click here for a link to my presentation, “Using ACTFL Core Practices to Facilitate Vocabulary Acquisition.”

    Merci, Madame, de l’avoir partagĂ©!
    Happy to hear you had a positive ACTFL conference experience. So wish I could have attended – would loved to have been present at your presentation!
    The sharing of your resources has enhanced my French 3/4 program. Merci beaucoup. Safe travels!

    Another wonderful resource! I just left ACTFL this afternoon and was kicking myself that I did not see this presentation in the program. You are simply amazing, Lisa! Merci mille fois!

    What an insightful (and beautifully-worded) post! I am so conflicted about my own teaching style. Although I have been at it for over a decade, I still find myself waffling between following a book, using only authentic resources, attempts at PBL, etc., all the while trying to incorporate comprehensible input. I think the best conclusion for me in my current job is a combination of these methods, and I appreciate your confirming that that is okay :-).

    Most of my proficiency-based learning resources are yours, and I am so grateful! Even though I “steal” most of what I use, I have also begun making some of my own “guides de comprĂ©hension,” using yours as templates. Merci infiniment!!!
