Our Summer Institutes immerse you in proficiency-based communicative language teaching.
Spend half your day as a student in a language class, learning Latin, French, Cherokee, or Scots Gaelic and seeing instructional and assessment strategies in action!
Spend the other half of your day working hands-on with Tina Hargaden on teacher skills and lesson planning!
You will leave with our 200-page Resource Manual filled with your notes, resources, rubrics, and the nuts and bolts you need to make next year the best ever!
We have been teaching languages using a proficiency-forward, communicative approach for a long time and we have never seen a program like this.
We had to build it because it did not exist!
Our Summer Institutes do not just give you ideas;
we teach you a
of instruction and assessment
that minimizes your planning and grading time
and maximizes your students' language acquisition!
Preview our Resource manual and see for yourself why our
Summer Institutes are, quite simply, the
most comprehensive training
for proficiency-oriented World Language teachers ever developed!
