The Cardinal is the member newsletter of the Ohio Foreign Language Association.
As stated in The Cardinal Vol.1 No 1, October 1962: “We think we have the ideal title. Ohio’s representative bird, the cardinal, whose song is as beautiful as his plumage, is certainly distinctive. Furthermore, first definition of ‘cardinal’ is: ‘of basic importance.’ In this modern era it is ‘of basic importance’ for more Americans to know more modern foreign languages, and to know them better. So we think The Cardinal is a most suitable title for our modern foreign language newsletter.
The Cardinal is published three times per year. The submission dates are October 1, February 1, and May 1 of each school year.
