Spend summer in beautiful and historic Querétaro, Mexico!  You will learn about the history, culture, and language of Mexico while also studying about ELLs, assessments, and methods. The program starts in June in an online format for 4 weeks.  This time will be spent reading about theory and completing some initial assignments. Then, we will be in Mexico for 5 weeks.  Here, we will add on to our theoretical knowledge while also putting our knowledge into practice by teaching students English.
