Working Films - Dual Language Immersion Program Featured
Working Films is a national nonprofit that connects documentary film screenings with community organizations to help them advance their efforts. They are currently doing a big push in North Carolina around supporting public education issues. One of the films they are working with is called Speaking in Tongues which follows 4 students in dual language immersion programs. They would like to screen this film at schools with world language programs to help these schools go beyond the choir and build support for the work they are doing. They are especially interested in working with schools that would like to use the event as a way to help local communities learn about the various programs that are offered for their children. Please contact Andy Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in setting up an event this fall. Working Films will be able to pay for screening rights and provide financial support for other logistics (refreshments, venues, etc.).

Unique Living Aboard Opportunity
Dear friends and colleagues: I teach anthropology at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. My wife, son and I are going to be away from our apartment in Mexico City’s fashionable, fun Condesa neighborhood from July 8th to August 17th this summer (2013), and we’re looking for someone to rent/house-sit. Housing-sitting duties would basically consist of feeding our two cats. It wouldn’t even be necessary to clean the litter box because the person who comes and cleans twice a week does that. The apartment is walking distance to parks, supermarkets, cafés, restaurants and subway and bus routes, and a short subway ride to the historic city center. It’s 1,320 square ft. (123 square meters), gets lots of light, is kid-friendly and has two bedrooms and a study with a futon. It also has a washer/dryer, cable t.v. with DVR, dishwasher and wifi. In exchange for the care of the cats, we’re only asking for $800 (US dollars) in rent for the six weeks—a price well below the market value. This includes all utilities and covers the salary of a woman who cleans and cooks twice a week.If you are interested or would like more information, please contact me at email@example.com. Sincerely, Roger Magazine

Support Language Education by Sending Congress a Message!!!
Show your support for language education by sending Congress a message! ACTFL has set up a new resource on their website that allows anyone to send messages to Congress very easily and quickly. Let's let North Carolina be heard in Washington D.C.! The number of messages matters! Aides will tell the Senators and Reps how many phone calls/emails they have received about specific legislation and issues, so each and every email matters! Emails with specific information from your perspective are always helpful, but sometimes a prepared message can help. This site allows you to send a message that has already been written for you. Directions for using the auto message site are HERE. It's quick and easy (2 minutes or less!) Please send your message today!
