  • Vocabulary and Pronunciation Through the Arts (VPA) Course
    sang and then we learn the whole back story That s how it works and it seems to be successful Students for example will listen to a song and they will study the words Then Lieber will take away some of the words from the song so the students have to fill in the lyrics Through art and readings students study pronunciation and contractions and do grammar speaking and vocabulary acquisition It s all natural because the focus is on the content It s more on learning the concept and we ll break it down and study the individual parts We read an artist s biography and students have to write five things about what they learned Mainly it s a production class If they are in class producing or drawing then that s what they re getting graded on Lieber adds The ALI s main objective is to teach students English but Lieber says I also think we re trying to teach them skills to prepare them to go into the real world and university The art element is needed It gives them a dimension they didn t have before The music also provides them with pronunciation skills It s easier for them to learn the words when there is a musical beat This course is a two hour per week credit no credit class Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to post a comment in this post ALI Program Blogs Semester SDSU Posts English for Academic Purposes Posts Intensive English for Communication Posts Business English for Global Practices Posts Social Entrepreneurship Posts Student Profiles ALI Student Profile Sofia Rodriguez 11 February 2015 11 54 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Profile Tomomi Aoki 30 October 2014 4 38 PM No Comments Read More

  • The ALI Student Life Program – FaceLift Community Project
    hundred Every Monday students receive a copy of the ALI Weekly by email They read about the upcoming activities and decide what they re interested in doing The students work hard in their classes to prepare themselves for the future By getting involved in activities they have opportunities to practice the skills they re learning and hopefully put things into context For many the activities are also a good way to get to know other students and have some fun says Schuchman Some of this semester s students have volunteered before but many are doing so for the first time They are often surprised by how necessary volunteers are to local organizations It becomes apparent to them that the work could not be accomplished without involvement by people like themselves Schuchman explains Some students talk about wanting to see more volunteering in their own country they think about taking what they ve learned here back home I think it s safe to say that most of the first timers seem eager to volunteer again Future Student Life Activities The ALI will be volunteering again soon with other organizations in the community It s baseball season and the ALI has sections reserved at two upcoming Padres games In the weeks ahead students can also visit Sea World or the San Diego Zoo hike up some popular peaks or go kayaking near the Pacific Ocean English conversation groups will also meet twice a month Finally the summer graduation party will take place at the Mission Bay Aquatic Center it s a great time for students to take equipment out on the bay relax with friends eat good food and reflect on all they ve accomplished during their time at the ALI Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to

  • TESL/TEFL Student Teaches in Czech Republic
    age of kindergarten to third grade However what he learned from the ALI teacher training program is what he says helped him teach English successfully One of the most important things that I got from Van director was to be prepared have contingency plans and always be flexible so you can pull something out of your hat if something goes wrong I can t tell you how many times I forgot to bring my lesson plans or English cards I would have to think of something on the spot so that flexibility and multifaceted skill set really helped out teaching in the Czech Republic Candelario has taught at a summer camp in France and still plans to teach abroad either in Europe or South America He definitely recommends the program for anyone who is adventurous and is always looking to learn new things He also advises that It pays off to know to meet and to network when you are living abroad because you never know what is in your future Tags Joe Candelario Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to post a comment in this post ALI Program Blogs Semester SDSU Posts English for Academic Purposes Posts Intensive English for Communication Posts Business English for Global Practices Posts Social Entrepreneurship Posts Student Profiles ALI Student Profile Sofia Rodriguez 11 February 2015 11 54 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Profile Tomomi Aoki 30 October 2014 4 38 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Profile Valeria Garcia Alvarez 21 July 2014 3 42 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Finds Multinational Success Yutaka Matsuda 28 January 2014 7 28 PM No Comments Read More Student Spotlight Zabella Demirtshyan Pre MBA and Pre Master s Program 16 October 2013 10 30 PM No Comments

    there is a way to stand you can feel that from the people from each country they carry the history of their country Today Urban lives in Paris after spending a semester at the American Language Institute ALI at SDSU in the English for Academic Purposes program I wanted to know much more about the American culture so I decided to study in U S I had two choices Boston or San Diego Boston is much more European so I decided to come to San Diego for four months Studying English in the U S was a very new experience for Urban since she has only studied English for a few years She learned there are often different meanings behind words Urban adds I will be more careful using words especially the word productive The meaning of the word isn t defined the same way worldwide Never wanting to be stationary after her study at the ALI Urban made a cross country trip across the U S where she says the highlights were hanging with Navajo Native Americans in Arizona and experiencing the city of New Orleans Her next step is to return to Kenya to work with a small data agency collecting data for the NGOs They have a huge network of volunteers to collect data on health and education in Africa We digest the data and present it to the NGO she says After Kenya Urban s plan is to continue her English study at the University of Birmingham in England to study online investigative and data journalism to find a new way of practicing journalism by knowing more about social media and networking Tags Marion Urban Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to post a comment in this post ALI Program Blogs Semester

  • The Intensive English Communications (IEC) Program
    entry dates which gives students a large variety of start date options I think the IEC program has a lot of unique elements We have a very dedicated experienced group of teachers Some have been in this program for 15 20 years a few for 35 years That type of loyalty is hard to find in any organization We also offer a unique curriculum comprised of teacher created classroom texts This was done specifically to fit our method of student centered communicative language learning Classes have little lecture time and a lot of student interaction and communicative practice The goal is to get students to use the language rather than to just learn about it says Snell America is a country built on a diversity of cultures and nationalities It has made us into an incredibly rich multifaceted culture That richness is the same at the ALI and the IEC program Snell adds Having students from a wide range of countries offers students teachers and staff alike the opportunity to interact to widen our world perspective to learn respect and understanding and to rejoice in the beauty and wonder of the human race I find it a humbling and energizing experience to work in this environment and consider myself privileged to be a part of the IEC program Comments Closed Comments are closed You will not be able to post a comment in this post ALI Program Blogs Semester SDSU Posts English for Academic Purposes Posts Intensive English for Communication Posts Business English for Global Practices Posts Social Entrepreneurship Posts Student Profiles ALI Student Profile Sofia Rodriguez 11 February 2015 11 54 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Profile Tomomi Aoki 30 October 2014 4 38 PM No Comments Read More ALI Student Profile Valeria Garcia Alvarez 21 July
