Facilitated Language Study (FLS)


This course is designed for highly motivated learners who wish to study a language aside from the traditional sequenced class offerings, or students who have completed our sequenced courses at the highest level and wish to design their own course of study to continue to progress in the language. In this non-traditional language study class, students will use a variety of materials and resources to learn a chosen language and cultural elements related to the countries where the language is spoken. The teacher-facilitator will instruct the groups in critical language learning methods and students will participate in language learning activities, working individually as well as cooperatively in small language cohorts. Native and non-native-speaking tutors will provide oral practice. The first year of this course will cover the introductory curriculum in the chosen language as well as language learning techniques. Subsequent years will continue to study in the chosen language.
