The Modified Foreign Language Program (MFLP) offers Spanish language courses to students who demonstrate a need for curricular modifications. Language learning is facilitated through use of a multisensory, explicit approach to teaching that is customized to support each student’s challenge areas. The MFLP courses are different from the equivalent mainstream classes, mainly because a different pedagogy, teaching materials and methodology are employed to meet the needs of the students.

The Modified Foreign Language Program was developed at the University of Colorado Boulder over twenty years ago to support students who struggle with foreign language learning. All programs of study at CU Boulder have a foreign language requirement, the length depending on one's degree. Although students may work toward graduation, some remain significantly challenged by foreign language. The MFLP uses a multi-sensory teaching approach to help students fulfill the foreign language requirement. 

The Modified Foreign Language Program serves all eligible CU Boulder baccalaureate degree-seeking students who qualify to participate in the program. The program provides students with additional options for completing the foreign lanaguge requirement. 

The modified classes support students with and without diagnosed language learning disabilities/differences, students who have sustained traumatic brain injuries, students with sensory impairments, students with psychiatric diagnoses, returning veterans with multiple medical conditions (e.g., PTSD, etc.) that can impact language learning, and any other condition with demonstrated impact on foreign language learning.
