    As a certified language teacher, I enjoyed looking at this site and seeing the availability of children's books in different languages. It is not easy to find children's books in different languages at reasonable prices. It is also sometimes very difficult to find books in some languages. Students love to use technology and I think this is a great way for students to practice their language learning skills.

    The Forum on Education Abroad welcomes as members all institutions of higher education, organizations, and agencies who are committed to improving education abroad. Members join a community that sets the Standards of Good Practice for the field. (From the member site)

    After reading the Standards of Good Practice for the field, I wonder how we can promote education abroad in our public schools. It should be connected with language learning, but many public schools are dropping language programs and now it is causing language programs to be in jeopardy at the college level. By going abroad, students can practice their language skills and learn about the culture as well.
