Founded in 1954, the association provides its members with pedagogical assistance and linguistic resources for language instruction at elementary, secondary, and university levels. The member organization has an annual conference in the spring, workshops in conjunction with the MEA/MFT Conference in October, and provides a website and dynamic community full of resources. MALT is a constituent of the Pacific Northwest Council on Foreign Languages (PNCFL) and the American council on the Teaching of ForeignLanguages (ACTFL).

Thank you MALT members for the spectacular workshop and sectionals at the MFPE conference. A special thank you to Megan Wong for the awesome lesson planning workshop "Will students want to talk about this?"
