The language proficiency targets indicate what students are expected to do with the language at the end of each course in terms of producing language (Expresive and Glossing), understanding language (Receptive and Finger Spelling), and interacting with others in the language. Proficiency targets for each language are based on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) Proficiency Guidelines.
