Comprehensible Input is a different way of teaching a second (or third or fourth) language.  The focus is on comprehensible and interesting input, communicable language, pacing teaching to our student’s learning progress, and using to the way our brains naturally learn to increase language acquisition.  

Several summers ago, Michigan CI educators working together at IFLT and CiMidwest decided it was time to bring a Comprehensible Input conference to the Mitten state.  MittenCI became a reality because all of the excited teachers at IFLT and CiMidwest inspired us to continue to share this effective and fun method of teaching. There are many amazing educators in the Great Lakes area, and we hope to support you by bringing an exciting day of training close to home. Comprehensible Input in the Mitten, on the path to language acquisition.
