In episode 10 of We Teach Languages, Stacey talks with C. Brian Barnett about his experiential learning course that centers on francophone communities in the U.S. In addition to learning language and culture, students engage in structured reflection to make sense of those experiences and, in the process, become deeply connected to US language communities.
