Professional Development and Technical Assistance Services

The Center for Applied Linguistics has provided language and cultural orientation services to educators, service providers, and businesses for more than 50 years. CAL specializes in developing effective solutions to the challenges faced by practitioners working with language learners at all levels of instruction (preK–12, higher education, and adult education). Drawing on years of experience as teachers, researchers, coaches, and curriculum developers, CAL staff provide the tools, training, and resources educators need to help students of all ages succeed. CAL also has a long history of providing resources to service providers working with refugees and newcomers to help them adjust to their new lives in the United States.

From technical assistance to professional development, from curriculum development to program evaluation, CAL can work with you to design a solution to meet your specific needs, help you improve your teaching skills, and support the language learners in your classroom or community.

As a nonprofit organization, CAL makes every effort to provide cost-effective and high-quality services and materials that can be tailored to meet your unique requirements.
