Ahhh, the end of August: the nights are getting cooler, the mornings are a little bit darker, and Labor Day is looming. Summer is almost over and school is about to begin!

I'm not one to make resolutions in January but I love to make them in September. Here are this year's three.

Last week I went to the NECTFL (Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) Conferences in New York City. It was excellent! In addition to being back in Manhattan -- which was wonderful, despite the Arctic temperatures -- all of the sessions I attended were very good. The conference's theme was intercultural competence, and almost all of the sessions I attended addressed that topic. Here are my 5 takeaways from the conference.
