Its major focus is the presentation of information relating to the American Association of Teachers of French, news of the state of the profession of teaching French--exciting programs and experiments in teaching methods which have succeeded, the morale of teachers--and news of what is going on in France and in the Francophone world.

Items which are not in the author's native language should be carefully proofread by a native speaker before submission.
