Teachers were the students today taking notes on how to improve their classrooms.

B-U's romance languages department hosted their 3rd annual conference on foreign language teaching today.

The event gave language instructors the opportunity to sit at the pupil's desk in the classrom to learn different techniques on how to shape and teach an increasingly global generation.

Chesla Ann Bohinski, assistant Spanish professor, BU said "learning a language not only allows you to really have a profound respect for others, but it also allows you to learn about yourself and see your own culture through now a completely different lens."

The conference continues tomorrow with a variety of sessions on techniques like using social media and new technologies to teach foreign language.
