CeLTA Student Interaction Grants deadline

CeLTA Student Interaction Grants provide support in reaching oral proficiency goals over the summer months.
Students in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish classes 202 or above are eligible.

If you are selected, you will receive:

  • Diagnostic feedback on how to improve your speaking skills with a specialist from CeLTA
  • 5 free conversations with trained native speakers via TalkAbroad (talkabroad.com) – a $50 value
  • Free consultations with CeLTA staff to help you structure goals and activities of the conversation sessions

This is an excellent opportunity to advance your speaking skills and to get guided feedback on your speaking proficiency. Because these activities can be done using video conferencing, you do not need to be physically present on campus; a webcam and a good Internet connection are required.

If selected, you are expected to:

  • Take a computerized interview to assess your current language speaking ability
  • Meet with a CeLTA language specialist for feedback on improving your speaking skills and how to navigate TalkAbroad
  • Engage in reflection on your speaking by transcribing one conversation
  • Email CeLTA your transcription after your fifth conversation and submit feedback forms on the program
  • Complete all activities above by the end of August

If all of the criteria are met, there will be an opportunity to receive 5 more free conversations.

Applications are due April 5, 2018 at 5 pm.
