CONTACT: Marty Abbott
Alexandria, VA—The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) is proud to present the first summer East Coast MOPI hosted by Lexington School District One at Glen Meadow High School in Lexington, South Carolina on August 5-6, 2014. ACTFL’s goal to provide K-12 educators accessibility to this highly valued workshop prior to the start of the school year is now being realized. This two-day workshop is an introduction to the techniques of administering and rating the Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) at the Novice and Intermediate levels. Participants observe and conduct live practice interviews. They critique and discuss interview elicitation, structure, and rating. Participation in a Modified OPI Assessment Workshop is the first step toward becoming an ACTFL Certified OPI Tester with Limited Certification.
Enhance your professional development with the invaluable MOPI training and also become eligible to apply for OPI certification. All participants will receive a certificate of participation equal to 14 hours of professional development. Currently, there are two sections open for registration: Spanish and English/mixed languages. Space is limited so register now!
