Learn a foreign language in no time this summer by signing up for accelerated classes through MTSU’s Center for Accelerated Language Acquisition.
Classes for the 12th annual Summer Language Institute include Spanish 1 and 2, Arabic 1 and 2, German 1 and 2 and Latin 1, as well as teacher training classes. Most classes are scheduled for June and July, with some Spanish classes also offered in August. The center, also known as CALA, is the official language training operation of the University Honors College at Middle Tennessee State University. CALA has spent years researching how the brain learns language best with the experts in the field of psychology and brain research, according to Dr. Shelley Thomas, an associate professor of foreign language and founder of the institute. Research shows that the best way to learn a language is the same way you learned your native language — with lots of hands-on methods that are fun and enjoyable. The center has spent over 10 years perfecting these methods through feedback from its students. These classes have been offered to students from all walks of life — from age 8 to 80 — and CALA customers rave about the fun and ease with which they learn a foreign language.
