The innovative, theory-centered instruction offered through the world language education program at The Ohio State University has prepared me to begin my professional teaching career with confidence. A key feature of this program is its emphasis on experiential learning. At Ohio State, you will do more than study the theories of language acquisition; you will put them into practice through lesson design and implementation. As a result, I have been able to personally recognize the ways in which they may be applied to enrich and accelerate learning.
