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 (speaking and writing), understanding language (listening and reading), 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.
