Here are just a few things our students are saying:

“SLI provides the perfect balance between theory and practice. It is both flexible and rigorous. The experience of being able to hone your craft among colleagues from around the country in a location as beautiful as Guanajuato is an unbeatable combination!" 

Mavi Gilmore, MA ‘21

"The professors are from universities all around the country, and are passionate about their work and applying the concepts learned to real-world secondary classrooms...What I have learned through this program, I use every year in my classroom. I value every minute of my experience." 

Laurie Barry, MA '19

“This program offers fun, rigorous, and relevant courses that have helped me improve my teaching while giving me the cultural experience of a lifetime. I have built lifelong friendships...This is definitely an exceptional program!"

Dean Wou, MA ‘22 

"SLI at SOU was the only Masters of Teaching Program that I could find that centered around the current research-based language teaching practices. This is what every language teacher needs to know and how to defend your choices to any department or administrator. This program is for the risk taker who believes in growth mindset and is ready to delve deep into their personal motivations to be an educator, in order to stretch their professional practice to new levels."

Genevieve H. Columbo, MA ‘23
