The North American Christian Foreign Language Association is holding its annual conference here at ACU. It will be held mostly in the Hunter Welcome Center, from Thursday 4/7 through Saturday 4/9. Things of general interest include:

  • Dr. Susan Felch, from Calvin College, will be the plenary speaker on Thursday evening.
  • Multi-lingual devotionals on Friday and Saturday morning, possibly may get additional Chapel credit (still looking into it).
  • Two sessions devoted to Study Abroad on Saturday morning. Would be of great value for those remotely interested in study abroad.
  • For students in a foreign language class, possible additional credit or replacement of low scores on an assignment for attending a session and completing an activity associated with it (check with your instructor).

The French movie “Des Dieux et des Hommes” (Of Gods and Men) is coming to the USA with English subtitles. The story
of these monks who sacrificed their lives in Algeria is very moving.
I encourage everyone who can to go and see it or rent it.
Yann Opsitch

Here is a review of the movie by Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Time.
