Center for Accelerated Language Acquisition (CALA)
Welcome to the Center for Accelerated Language Acquisition (CALA), the official language
training operation of the University Honors College
at Middle Tennessee State University
. Based on research on how the brain learns best, CALA uses methods like TPR (Total
Physical Response) and TPRS (Teaching Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling)
to create an engaging, natural, and fun language-learning experience. Our accelerated
language classes are offered as five-day seminars and include Spanish, French, Arabic,
German, Latin, and Chinese. We also offer a methodology course to teachers interested
in using these advanced methods in their own classroom. Click the link below for
