About The California World Language Project

The California World Language Project (CWLP) is a collaborative, statewide network that sponsors year-round professional development programs for World Language educators intended to strengthen the teaching of languages and cultures in California. The project aims to involve every language teacher in supportive professional learning communities that foster excellence in language teaching, deepen content knowledge and pedagogical skills, and provide leadership development opportunities. CWLP continuously advocates for the retention, expansion and articulation of World Language programs across all language levels, especially in the critical languages and cultures deemed to be essential for California students to contribute to and successfully interact in our linguistically and culturally diverse society.
