Welcome to the Parents as Language Partners webpage, sponsored by the New York State Association of Foreign Language Teachers (NYSAFLT.) This page is designed for all the parents who have a child studying a foreign language. NYSAFLT believes that the role of the parent is essential in the success of a child’s learning of a foreign language. This section of the NYSAFLT website is designed to provide parents with information about what they can do to help their child and things they should know about the study of a foreign language.

In addition, NYSAFLT believes your involvement and support for foreign language programs is essential. This website thus offers you links and documentation on opportunities to get more involved in the LOTE community. Please do not hesitate to contact the committee if you have any questions or would like to get more information.

Help your child find/select a college with a strong foreign language program!

When you click below, you will find simple but strong ways of getting involved and becoming a great language partner!

Wishing you a great visit and welcome to NYSAFLT!
