High School Language Day
In October, 2018 the Department of Languages and Intercultural Studies will host the first Language Day for students and teachers from high schools in the Grand Strand region and adjacent counties. High school students will participate in activities hosted by each of the seven languages offered at CCU, will complete a number of learning tasks, gain information about Coastal programs, and interact with faculty and students in the LIS Department. Specifically, LIS majors will assist faculty in creating and implementing appropriate language-learning activities. In doing so, they will acquire organizational skills and experience in working with adolescents in a pedagogical endeavor related to their field of study. LIS students will work closely with faculty, which will help facilitate faculty-student interactions that promote retention. Students will also learn about approaches to advocacy for the study of language and culture and have the opportunity to network with area teachers.
