With the push for language learners to develop communicative competence in their target languages, the goal of developing academic proficiency is often neglected, especially at the early learning stages. Presenters offer strategies for fostering early academic language proficiency while expanding communicative competence in the college-level beginning and intermediate language classrooms.
