AFLA is a statewide professional association of world language educators. We are committed to offering and improving opportunities for learning world languages in Alaska through the continued support and promotion of the world languages teaching profession. AFLA represents Alaskan educators through the Pacific Northwest Council for Languages (PNCFL), and ACTFL, the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Each year, Alaskans For Language Acquisition holds a statewide conference providing an opportunity for world language teachers to expand their horizons without traveling out of state and to have access to local and national experts. We also use the occasion to meet our in-state colleagues. Success of the conference is dependent not only on the speakers we can bring to Alaska, but on the expertise we have to offer each other.
AFLA gives three annual awards. Click on the links below to learn more about each award!
