Final Recovery Week 1 (of 2)
This week and next are "recovery weeks" read more below:
Here's what to expect in class this week:
"Recovery Week" means that no new assignments will be due. It will give those of you who are behind some time to get caught up, and those who are on-time, time to work ahead.
You will need to use your time effectively:
- Work on your Final Project
- Work on your Final LinguaFolio Project
- Coaching is required this week - you must attend as scheduled. It will count for a regular grade.
- Submit any assignments that you have not submitted from lessons 9 through 15 for late credit.
Also, don't forget:
- Vote for Language Coach of the Year!
- Take the NCVPS Student survey!
- Upcoming Culture Cafes!
Be sure to read the announcements for some Bonus Point opportunities!

Coaching during Recovery Week 2 (next week) will count as either make-up or bonus. The Maximum number of sessions you may attend during recovery week 2 as bonus/make-up is 4.
