Hours & Credits
Culture and English Language Teaching is a student-led, experiential course focusing on key concepts in the teaching of language and culture to speakers of English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL). Topics normally include: intercultural communicative competence, political issues in ELT, ethnography in the classroom, and approaches to the development of language learners' receptive and productive skills.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
