Project CAMINO (K-State and ULEAM)
K-State English Language Program Overview
Project Camino is a multi-phase program involving a partnership with Universidad Laica Eloy Alfaro de Manabi (ULEAM) and Kansas State University’s College of Education, Global Education Outreach (GEO) and The English Language Program (ELP) is the first step in the program. The ELP is responsible for several of the beginning steps:
- A self-assessment that will give partners and participants an overview as to the level of English the faculty have.
- A formal pre- and post- program assessment for partners and participants to show growth in English ability.
- Orientation to Canvas (the LMS used for the classes).
- Instruction in English to prepare participants: To reach a B1 CEFR; and to improve English Skills to better engage in teaching and research.
English Assessment Overview
In order to serve every participant better, we need to assess the level of your English skills. This will help us to know how much English support and training we will need to provide during the program. In these assessments, there is no penalty for lower skills and no prize for higher skills. We just want to give participants the best instruction at their current level.
The assessments will take a total of about 2 hours during orientation week.
