Which languages are taught where in our state?

This is the question that the MELL (Mapping and Enhancing Language Learning) project at the University of Washington is seeking to answer. Building on the data originally collected in the World Language Survey of 2004, conducted by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), the Washington Association for Language Teaching (WAFLT), and the Washington State Coalition for International Education, the MELL project is making it possible for the state to expand on that original report and create both a snapshot and trend reports over time.

We invite you to take a closer look at what we've learned so far by visiting our website:

About MELL

Since 2006, four National Resource Centers at the University of Washington's Jackson School of International Studies have received funding from the U.S. Department of Education for an ongoing project entitled "Mapping and Enhancing Language Learning" (MELL) in Washington state. The collection of data, produced through a collaborative effort of the UW Jackson School of International Studies, UW Language Learning Center, Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, Washington State Coalition for International Education, and Washington Association For Language Teaching (WAFLT), represents a significant effort to help us get a better picture of what languages students are currently learning in our K-12 schools and community language programs.
