The mission of the Pennsylvania State Modern Language Association is to enhance foreign language education throughout the state by:

  • promoting the study of foreign languages,
  • providing educators opportunities for professional growth and networking, 
  • recognizing excellence in the field, and 
  • collaborating with local, state and national organizations.

PSMLA is a non-profit professional organization dedicated to the teaching and learning of languages and cultures from kindergarten through university levels.

We hope that teachers, students, parents, and community members find this a useful reference for information related to world language education in the state of Pennsylvania.  Please contact us so that we can best meet your needs.
