Canada College's English Institute: A Community College Program for Spanish-Speaking Students.
Sutherland, Kenton
This paper describes the history and development of a program of college preparation and language study for Spanish speakers at Canada College in Redwood City, California. The first step was to draw the local Spanish-speaking population to the college; this was done through a Latin festival. The second step, an assessment of educational needs, resulted in an ESL program designed specifically for Spanish speakers. Following the success of this program, courses were established which could be taught bilingually or in Spanish. Further curriculum innovations included secretarial courses and Spanish for Spanish speakers. Plans for the future include bilingual/bicultural teacher training and vocational training. (AM)
