|Spanish and English Programs
All levels of English and Spanish (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced) are taught in small training groups. Assessing the needs, expectations, interests, and goals of participants is an integral part of the curriculum and is important in achieving the goal of creating a "learner-centered" environment. Using a variety of needs assessment tools, we are able to determine the instructional placement level of participants.
Needs assessment will be done routinely in order to ensure that goals are being met and to assist us in planning effective lessons that are relevant to their needs. We conduct a final program evaluation to determine outcomes and which serves as a guide for future training.
