 TESOL INSTITUTE 1995
 UNIVERSIDAD DE CARABOBO
 VALENCIA, VENEZUELA

GENERAL INFORMATION

Latin America hosts its first TESOL Institute at the University of Carabobo
in Valencia. This city, located in a valley, has a tropical climate
ranging from 23 to 32 degrees Centigrade, that provides the opportunity to
enjoy a permanent Summer vacation.

The coast, with its exotic beaches is half an hour away, and Caracas, the
country's capital, an hour and a half drive. An elaborate highway system
links Valencia with other states and major cities. It enjoys the services
of an international airport, linking it with the rest of the world.

The University of Carabobo was founded in 1892. It offers programs through
its 8 faculties, leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees. The
university through its English Department at the Faculty of Education, has
become a major center for preparing teachers for Venezuela.

Participants will be exposed to rich and varied historical, sport and
touristic attractions, such as The Battlefield of Carabobo, a horse racing
track, an aquarium. In addition to the academic agenda, the '95 TESOL
Institute will offer some interesting cultural events. Typical Venezuelan
musical and dance groups, featuring the Venezuelan harp and "cuatro" will
delight everyone. Handicrafts and indigenous artcrafts will be displayed.
Participants may choose to reside in private homes and thus have an
opportunity to be part of the daily life of the city and its people.

PROGRAM

Two three-week sessions from July 17 to August 25, offering over 30 course
topics are scheduled to meet Monday through Thursday. Participants may
choose to attend courses for academic credit as offered by the University
of Carabobo or audit courses on a non credit basis. Spanish language and
cultural courses with academic credit will be offered to those interested
in improving their Spanish proficiency and knowledge of Latin America. An
enrichment program including conferences, workshops and seminars will be
offered on Fridays. There will be two conferences, as well as a Book Fair
