The Modified Foreign Language Program (MFLP) was developed at the University of Colorado Boulder over twenty years ago to support students who encounter major difficulties with foreign language learning. It serves all eligible CU Boulder baccalaureate degree-seeking students who qualify to participate in the program: students with and without diagnosed language learning disabilities, students who have sustained traumatic brain injuries, students with sensory impairments, students with psychiatric diagnoses, returning veterans with medical conditions that can impact language learning, and any other condition with demonstrated impact on foreign language learning.
The MFLP offers Spanish language courses to students who demonstrate a need for curricular modifications. The MFLP courses are different from the equivalent mainstream classes, mainly because a different pedagogy, teaching materials and methodology are employed to meet the needs of the students. Language learning is facilitated through use of a multi sensory approach to teaching.
