Pro­gram Overview

The CLS Program’s vir­tu­al pro­gram­ming in 2021 com­pris­es approx­i­mate­ly 20 hours of lan­guage activ­i­ties per week, including:

  • 10 hours of face-to-face (syn­chro­nous) small group class 
  • 10 – 15 hours of syn­chro­nous and asyn­chro­nous activities:
    • Indi­vid­ual feed­back ses­sions with instructors
    • Asyn­chro­nous instruc­tion, such as review­ing video recordings 
    • Cul­tur­al activities
    • Indi­vid­ual and group home­work assignments 
    • Direct­ed inde­pen­dent study
    • Reg­u­lar meet­ings with a lan­guage part­ner for con­ver­sa­tion practice

The Indone­sian pro­gram is host­ed by Uni­ver­si­tas Negeri Malang (UM), one of the old­est teach­ing insti­tu­tions in Indone­sia, dat­ing back to 1954. UM is con­sid­ered to be one of the pre­mière insti­tu­tions in Indone­sia for the teach­ing of edu­ca­tors, pro­fes­sors, and teach­ers of Indone­sian as a sec­ond lan­guage. UM has been host­ing the CLS Indone­sian Pro­gram since its incep­tion in 2010. The CLS Pro­gram has become well inte­grat­ed into the uni­ver­si­ty cul­ture and CLS stu­dents quick­ly find them­selves accept­ed as a part of the stu­dent com­mu­ni­ty. You can find out more about UM on their web­site.
