Dear Language Supporters and Advocates,


 


North Georgia College & State University (NGCSU) will
host the second summer language academy for high school rising sophomores,
juniors, and seniors in June and July 2012.  The Federal Service
Language Academy
(FSLA) is a three week residential program for
students who are interested in an immersion intensive language experience,
fitness, and exploring international-related careers with the federal
government.  Last year, 96 students from over 25 US states and three
foreign countries successfully completed the FSLA 


 


During the three weeks, students will be immersed in
intensive language instruction in First-Year Arabic, Chinese, Russian, German,
Korean or Second-Year French from highly qualified teachers, participate in a
daily fitness program, receive career counseling from federal agencies (CIA,
FBI, State Department, Homeland Security, and US Armed Forces), and receive
high school credit for successful completion of the academy. 


 


Please forward this information to any high school teachers,
counselors, or administrators in your data base who may be interested in
passing this information to their students and/or may be interested in a
teaching opportunity at the NGCSU Federal Service Language Academy.
