1 World Languages Series CTYOnline offers world languages series in Arabic, Chinese, and Spanish. Each series features interaction with an instructor, teaching assistants, and other students, using Internet-based conferencing software and virtual classrooms with small class sizes. Materials are tailored to the different age groups. Broadband Internet access is necessary for all world languages courses, so check technical requirements carefully before enrolling; if a placement test is needed, contact How do courses in the CTYOnline world languages series work? Courses in the CTYOnline world languages series include a number of elements to ensure that students can engage in interactions with native speakers, understand and interpret written and spoken language on a variety of topics, and have access to rich, multimedia course materials. Virtual Classroom, Real Time Students log in to the real time, virtual classroom led by the instructor twice a week for one hour sessions (usually in the evenings). We will also work with schools to provide a daytime schedule if the need arises. The classroom includes audio and live video interaction with the instructor, interactive whiteboard, audio, web tours, chat, polling, and many other features to enhance online learning. Students use their headsets with microphones and speakers to interact with instructors and classmates over a broadband Internet connection. Individualized Conversation Practice Students have two individualized conversation practices with instructors (15 minutes) and teaching assistants (30 minutes) each week using telephone or voice over IP (Skype). These practice sessions emphasize every day conversational speaking, role-playing, and pronunciation. Software, Textbooks, and Other Course Materials Depending on the course, students must purchase course materials that may include CD-ROMs, textbooks, workbooks, or an online access code. Some materials may span more than one course as the student progresses through levels of study and moves on to the next course. CTYOnline Course Website Students log into their course website, which includes the complete syllabus, extensive multimedia learning materials, quizzes, tests, gradebook, recordings of the virtual classroom sessions available for review, messaging capabilities to communicate with instructors and teaching assistants, discussion forums for asynchronous interactions, course calendars, news items, and more. The online course website is a complete roadmap for the course. World Languages Readers Workshops The Arabic, Chinese, and Spanish Literature Readers Workshops are offered in 5-week sessions. Students will read the materials and listen to audios before meeting with their instructor and classmates in a virtual classroom each week. Workshops include fun activities and games, and no tests or grades are provided.
