Summer Student Workshop on Language Teaching for Prospective World Language and Cultural Teachers

In conjunction with the 30th Annual Summer Seminar for Language Teachers
July 19 – July 24, 2019
University of California, Santa Barbara
Application Deadline – May 15,

We are pleased to announce that the California Language Teachers’ Association (CLTA) and the California World Language Project are again co-sponsoring the Student  Workshop at the Summer Seminar this coming summer. The 30th Annual Summer Seminar and Student Workshop will take place at the University of California, Santa Barbara from July 19-24, 2019 and will offer a program especially designed to introduce language majors and minors to world language education as a viable career option.

The Student Workshop will focus on exploring teaching world languages in the context of teaching languages and cultures in our increasingly diverse society and global economy. This will involve examining teaching strategies and lesson design, and interacting with language professionals who will share their experiences, philosophies and knowledge with prospective language teachers. Participants also will explore different pathways to becoming certified teachers of world languages and cultures and the support mechanisms that exist to help them navigate the application processes, entrance exams and related credentialing programs’ tuition costs.

CLTA and CWLP have collaborated in leveraging funding to cover the Summer Seminar’s program costs, so registration, lodging and meals will be covered for all student participants (transportation not included).
