The Full OPI Workshop is an
intensive four-day introduction to the techniques of administering and rating
the Oral Proficiency Interview. The rating scale and techniques for eliciting a
ratable sample are highlighted in daily plenary sessions and then reinforced in
language-specific break-out sessions. Participants have the opportunity to
observe live demonstration interviews conducted by their trainer. Under the
trainer’s supervision, they then conduct their own practice interviews with
volunteer candidates. The group critiques and discusses both these
practice interviews and their ratings. Following the workshop, participants may
apply to become ACTFL OPI Raters and Testers.

educators are better able to:
- apply key principles of teaching
