Civic Literacy. Language learners become aware of the judicial, legislative, and government functions of the target language country(ies) and are able to compare and contrast those with the civil liberties and responsibilities in the U.S. Because they can communicate in the target language, they are able to engage in discussions about and participate in activities in which they discuss civic life in their respective countries.
