The California World Language Project (CWLP) and the Stanford World Language Project (SWLP) are collaborative projects that conduct research on topics pertaining to Second Language Acquisition and sponsor professional learning opportunities for World Language educators.  The projects engage Stanford Graduate School of Education faculty, graduate students, and local and regional educators in research and professional learning activities that support best practices for teaching languages and cultures.  CWLP and SWLP also advocate for the retention, expansion and articulation of World Language programs across language levels and support California schools with the creation of World Language programs that prepare California’s students to successfully interact in our global society.  As members of the California Subject Matter Project network, both CWLP and SWLP research and program activities are supported with federal and state grants and guided by an Advisory Board and Concurrence Committee composed of representatives from diverse state educational institutions and the private sector.
