In this course, international students, study-abroad returnees, students with other international experiences, heritage speakers, and/or upper-level language students expand their knowledge of language and culture, process their own intercultural and language-learning experiences, and enrich local school classrooms. In addition to learning about language and culture teaching and the school context, students develop individual projects for presentation in school classrooms.

Particular activities for the schools will depend on the knowledge and interests of the students and on the teachers’ requests. Students may work alone or with a partner; those U.S. students interested in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) should request a presentation partner who is not a native speaker of English.
