CIE IN THE NEWS
The Center for International Education and Salem State University are pleased to welcome Afghani student Shogofa Amini to campus. Shogofa has just finished her first semester at Salem State, where she is taking undergraduate courses toward a major in political science. In addition, she is enrolled in the university’s English as a Second Language program.
News of a developing relationship between Salem State’s English as a Second Language program and the Universidad Autonoma de Chiapas in Mexico was featured in the Salem Gazette on March 18 and in the Boston Globe on Sunday, March 20. Mexico will be sending 15 future English teachers to Salem State during summer 2011 for purposes of improving their English language skills. A connection made by the Center’s assistant director and ESL coordinator, Sarah Dietrich, with the coordinator of a bachelor’s degree program in English language training in Mexico, was the initial catalyst for this exciting new opportunity, which has the potential to bring even more Mexican students to Salem State in the future.
