The Center for World Languages has extensive experience creating tailored English as a second/foreign language and teacher education programs for clients both in the US and abroad.

Three key principles guide all our tailored programs:

  1. Needs analysis shapes each program we design;
  2. authentic discourse is at the heart of how we teach language and educate teachers;
  3. content is selected to reflect the needs and interests of the learners.

Our faculty can design very flexible programs to meet your specific needs. Please contact us regarding the type and length of program that you envision. We can design programs to include any of the options below:
