Last summer, Nathan and I worked on two documents that we thought would be helpful for language teachers. This is the first of the two. I like it because it helps keep me realistic. The descriptions apply to students as they discuss four or five different topic areas–not necessarily ones that they have chosen, but those that they have mentioned as they answer introductory questions of an OPI interviewer.
Having taken the class with Ben Rifkin that inspired these notes, I realized how helpful it would be to keep learning more about the ACTFL standards and the requirements for the OPI (Oral Proficiency Interview). I’m curious to know whether this document is helpful for others.
