The refreshers are non-credit online language review courses (French, Spanish and German) that students can complete at their own pace and on their own time. The courses are Open Educational Resources (OERs) and are completely free of charge.
These self-paced courses review important aspects of the curriculum of the first two years while giving students a head start for third year courses. Every week deals with a new cultural topic and provides students with opportunities to engage in a variety of speaking, writing, reading and listening activities.
Answer keys are provided for most of the activities but students may ask a tutor or their teachers to give them feedback on the open-ended assignments such as the essays or the speaking activities. Teachers are also welcome to use the activities as they see fit or repurpose them to meet the needs of their students.
For feedback and suggestions, don't hesitate to email the Director (Susanna P. Pámies: firstname.lastname@example.org, 303-492-7225).
