Hawai‘i Association of Language Teachers

HALT Summer Summit 2024: 

Hōʻā ʻIke!  Ignite Understanding with CCLT!

Hōʻā ʻIke is a one-day workshop designed to equip K-16 world language teachers with practical skills and engaging strategies to bring Comprehension-based Communicative Language Teaching (CCLT) to life in the classroom.  Participants will design a personalized learning track that meets each teacher’s individual needs with morning sessions focusing on building foundational skills and afternoon sessions focused on learning and sharpening CCLT teaching strategies.  If you are not sure which sessions to choose, someone from our team of local facilitators will help you!  

The Hawai‘i Association of Language Teachers (HALT) is a group of language teachers from K-12 and higher education institutions in Hawai‘i who work to maintain the highest standards in the profession of teaching languages. We also promote the academic welfare of our students by providing steadily improving professional procedures and objectives for all teachers. Our organization provides teachers of languages with the opportunity to meet with their colleagues to exchange ideas and experiences and to enrich their professional background.

Membership is open to all world language professionals. Please visit our Membership  page for details.


HALT coordinates three events per year: a a Spring Conference, a Summer Summit, and a Fall Symposium, all of which have members and guest speakers presenting best practices, pedagogical research, and innovative methods and tools in language teaching and learning.
