International Educator - May/June 2016 - 79

services to international students, be aware
of the importance of language and cultural
intelligence (CQ) skills. Faculty and staff
who encourage and prepare U.S. students
to study abroad can develop curriculum
and cocurricular activities to foster the development of language skills and cultural
knowledge among all our students.
Immersion programs and high-profile
events highlighting the importance of multilingualism as a global competency are two
effective responses to the challenge of the U.S.
foreign language deficit. At the university level,
the Many Languages One World Essay Contest and Global Youth Forum is a wonderful
example of the collaborative "language enterprise" international education partnership,
recognizing and rewarding foreign language
skills within the context of the pre-eminent international organization, the United Nations.
Among immersion programs, the "révolution bilingue" in New York City and the
French language immersion programs in
New Orleans and Louisiana are noteworthy
for their success in developing strong partnerships among government, educators, and
parents. Among higher education institutions,
Middlebury College, known for the "Language Pledge" and whose language schools
celebrated their centennial just last year (in
2015), and Concordia's Language Villages are
examples of successful immersion programs.

Conclusion
The foreign language teacher has always
implicitly been an intercultural competence
teacher. Highlighting this aspect of foreign
language education and forging partnerships between international educators,
foreign language educators, and relevant
stakeholders will benefit all our students-
those who study abroad, those who stay on
campus, and our international students.
The language-international education
partnership would support the expansion of
opportunity for study abroad and international education to include a larger number
of students.
Many of the principles articulated in the
2013 Languages for All? report are applicable to international education.14 By working

together, we could be a stronger voice for
foreign language and international education for all our students.
