ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview Certification
Irma-Laura Green (Persian 2018) attended a 2-day Modified Oral Proficiency Interview training in early March 2020 at Wofford College, working toward her goal of pursuing Limited OPI Certification through ACTFL. The session highlighted the specifications for ratable samples from the Novice-Low to the Intermediate-High level as well as implications for language teaching in the classroom. Irma is putting these skills to use already as she designs lessons plans and teaches native Persian speakers who are learning English as a Second Language. Irma-Laura was also able to use these skills from the perspective of a language learner, as she was a participant of the CLS Arabic Virtual Institute during the summer of 2020.
“Not only will this training inform my improved ability to deliver language instruction, but it has also improved my ability to learn a foreign language.”
