Our online classes consist of a pre-assignment, independent coursework, and final assignment, as well as live online class sessions with your teacher/other au pairs. Credit for J-1 visa students is 36 hours. Students earning J-1 visa credit must attend all sessions and complete all homework.
Students will receive a pre-assignment one week before class begins. Other independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after online class ends.

Language, Identity, and the Right to Be Different: Making the Most of Your Cultural Tool-Kit
May 20-22. 2021
Learning Across America will be continuing in an online format until CUNY protocols for public safety change. Online courses will be held for the same number of credits as our in-person option. Please email us with questions at email@example.com.
Our multilingualism and the elements of our background that inform character and perspective can be considered part of our “Cultural Tool-Kit,” or the equipment we have to navigate through life.
This course will address the issues of language and identity. Your class will include a translation activity that highlights the remarkable benefits of speaking more than one language, and a brief writing exercise that will ask each student to share their own cultural autobiography.

Class meets online
Please note that your pre-assignment will be emailed to you one week before your first online class session. You will receive details on how to log-in to your online class sessions one day before the start of the course.
Once the final online class session has concluded, you will have one week to submit your independent coursework and final assignment to your teacher.
Students are required to be present during all live online class sessions. However, your independent coursework can be completed at your leisure before the deadline one week after your online class ends. We wanted to create flexibility in completion as we know many au pairs now have increased work hours due to COVID-19.
Students who require their certificate sooner than outlined above should request their final assignment in advance by contacting BMCC at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that BMCC needs two days from the date a student submits their final assignment to issue an educational certificate.
If you have any questions at this time, please email us at email@example.com. Please continue to stay safe.
