The program is designed to prepare participants to work with individuals whose native language is not English and is open to both education majors and non-education majors. Education majors, at all levels, will be better prepared to work with students in their classes whose first language is not English. Non-education majors will prepare to work along-side speakers of other languages and to help them acquire more proficiency in English.
