The academically solid self-instructional language program is a delicate balance of Coordinator, native-speaking Tutor to conduct drill sessions, outside Examiner, and appropriate texts and tapes in the target language.
Students should be expected to adhere to a daily schedule of tape practice, supplemented by two or three drill sessions a week conducted by the native speaker. Students should be tested at least once each semester by an outside Examiner, a qualified college or university language instructor.
See the menu to the left for descriptions and guidelines for these four roles in a self-instructional language program.
