Community Language Program
July - August 2018
July 16, 2018 - August 16, 2018
The Community Language Program (CLP) at Teachers College, Columbia University, is a part-time, non-credit program that provides quality and low-cost English and foreign language instruction to adult learners of diverse nationalities and backgrounds in the Columbia University and surrounding New York communities.
In addition, the CLP serves as an on-site language education lab in which TESOL and Applied Linguistics faculty and students enrolled in the masters and doctoral programs teach courses and use the CLP as a setting for empirical inquiry. Through their classroom observation and research, the CLP also gains insights into program efficiency and opportunities for its development. Thus, the CLP provides a fertile ground for a continuous synergy between theory and teaching practices.
