In his junior year of high school, Doug Renfield-Miller was flunking out. It didn’t help to also get ejected from school for passing out anti-war posters. To escape, Doug took his mother’s suggestion and applied for a year of study abroad. Hear the story of how a young man was changed by the full measure of a school year away, and of a kind of immersion that is fading from the American tableau. The America the Bilingual podcast is part of the Lead with Languages campaign of ACTFL?—?The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.
