Immersion Day at Chestnut Hill College

PSMLA will host their annual Immersion Day on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia from 9:00AM to 2:30PM. 

Teachers of Chinese, French, German, and Spanish will have opportunities to interact with colleagues on topics related to cultural themes in the target language. 

In addition, teachers of all languages will explore Proficiency Assessments in the world language classroom during a one-hour joint presentation and have an opportunity to take part in round-table conversations on this topic afterward. The presenter for this session is Margaret Malone, ACTFL and Georgetown University.

Attendees who are PSMLA members will be able to earn five hours of ACT 48 credits. The cost is $35 for PSMLA members, $45 for non-members, and $20 for students with college identification. Please note that these fees include a continental breakfast and international luncheon as well as access to exhibitors.

Please contact John Grande at for any questions.
