The Auburn University Summer English School (AUSES) is a collaboration between Auburn and Opelika City school districts and the Auburn University College of Education. This program was developed in summer 2008 by Dr. Changhoon Chang, a former assistant professor at the Dept. of Political Science and Dr. Suhyun Suh in order to meet the English language learning needs of fast growing non-English speaking Korean students in the area. The program provides 60-hour lessons in English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills for k-9 grade non-English speaking international students.
This program has been highly evaluated by participating teachers, parents and students as an outstanding summer enrichment program for students with limited English language skills. For the year of 2009 and 2010, the program was directed by joint efforts of Dr. Jung Won Hur, an assistant professor at the Dept. of Educational Foundation, Leadership and Technology, and Dr. Suhyun Suh. The program served approximately 100 students each year creating approximately $40,000 revenue needed to annually implement the program. Student tuitions ($20,000-22,000), a grant from the Office of University Outreach, Auburn City Schools, Opelika City, and Korean automobile business community ($18,000-20,000 per year) are the financial sources for the implementation of the program.
