  • Husson University, Bangor, ME

The 2011 Bangor Student Program will continue to provide new and tested teaching strategies and student learning opportunities. All student classes will provide language "immersion" and will include cultural/thematic learning. There will be a strong reliance on advanced educational technology in the classroom. Assessment will be ACTFL standards-based with an emphasis on meeting the needs of students with a diversity of learning styles. One hundred and fifty six (156) hours of instruction will be provided in language, cultural events, and special projects. The program will be divided into four (4) classes which will include three levels of instruction; beginner, intermediate and advanced. It is the hope of the Bangor Chinese School to expand learning outside of the classroom, which will include opportunities for students to communicate with their Chinese counterparts and friends through the internet. All students will be introduced to and use LinguaFolio as a tool of self assessment. The program will include a residential component for students wishing to be in summer residence. Many students have opted to be commuting students. Most educational and learning experiences will be held at Husson University which has hosted our program in past years.
