A Second Language Acquisition Certificate Program for  African Language Instructors.

May 18 - 29, 2015


A two week intensive program that will allow you to participate in professional development focusing on quality instruction, curriculum and assessments for African Languages. It will also train fellows in a number of crucial areas central to the effective operation of an African Languages Program.


Graduate students in good standing in any African language, linguistics, cultural studies, literature, second language acquisition, or any related field at an accredited institution of higher education are eligible. African language instructors and scholars may also apply. Preference will be given to those who have not attended the Institute before. In addition, all applicants must demonstrate serious interest in African Language learning and teaching.


The NALRC will cover the program fees (such as registration fees, administration costs, and instruction costs) for all selected applicants. Participants will be responsible for their accommodation and other expenses such as transportation, food and books and are encouraged to ask for support from their respective language or area studies programs to cover expenses that NALRC will not cover.
