David and Bonnie Freeman are Coming to Fresno!

The Intensive English Language Program is proud to sponsor David and Yvonne Freeman as the guest speakers at our local professional organization’s (Saroyan CATESOL) spring conference. The conference will be on Saturday, March 14th from 9 - 12 noon in the BC Lounge. David and Bonnie will speak on Developing Academic Language in Emergent Bilinguals.
The Freemans left FPU years ago to build a PhD program at the University of Texas, Brownville, where they continued to write and conduct research in language development. They have received accolades and awards in their work. Most recently, they were awarded the Teacher of the Year award by the National Council of Teachers of English.
