EHLS university partners collaborate with CAL in program development
and provide instruction and support for the program.
They meet two basic criteria:
- They are located in metropolitan areas that have substantial
communities of heritage speakers of a number of critical languages, and
they have established relationships with those communities
- They have established intensive English programs and expertise
in the development, provision, and evaluation of advanced-level English
for professional purposes courses and curricula
All EHLS instruction takes place on the campuses of
the university partners. Program participants who do
not live near one of these universities must be willing
to relocate for the duration of the program.
From 2006 through 2008, Georgetown University and the University of
Washington were the university partners for the EHLS program. Each provided
an intensive program of instruction that combined classroom instruction,
tutorials, and experiential learning. At each, instruction focused on
activities that participants would be expected to carry out in the workplace,
including meeting participation, presentations, topical research, analysis,
and report writing.
Beginning in 2009, the program takes place only at Georgetown University.
Limited funding is available to assist with relocation
costs for participants from outside the Washington,
DC metropolitan area. Read
