Interactive Pairing Activities Curriculum (IPAC): Overview

This curriculum has been distinctively designed to both engage and empower language learners. The wide range of communication themes has been chosen to interest learners while providing them with exposure to a diverse array of topics. The organizational layout creates a learner-centered structure for language acquisition via interaction. By modifying input and forming questions and answers, students learn to create with the target language as they interact with their language partners. This curriculum can be used in both the regular classroom and the virtual global classroom (using Skype or other VoIP software).
