WILMINGTON, NC- The Landfall Foundation generously awarded a $4,300 grant to Cape Fear Community College for a project entitled, “Advancing Global Communication by Implementing Language Software.” The Landfall Foundation grant is providing Cape Fear Community College students access to Rosetta Stone, a language software, which has been installed in learning lab centers at both the Downtown and North campus.
Gifts like the Landfall Foundation allow students to practice independently outside the classroom as well as allow language instructors to spend more time on creating rich social context in the classroom that can lead students to fluency.
“Learning a second language is becoming more and more necessary in today’s workforce, and CFCC seeks to provide each student with a quality education that will boost his/her success in the job market,” said Orangel Daniels, Dean of Arts and Sciences at Cape Fear Community College. “This project in our Spanish Department will help prepare each individual student for enhanced professional success upon graduation.”
The Landfall Foundation was formed to support local non-profit organizations for programs and projects that provide for the Arts, Education, and Health and Welfare in the Wilmington, North Carolina area. Since its establishment in 1996, the Foundation has raised and contributed $1,627,000 to Wilmington organizations including Good Shepherd, Habitat for Humanity, and DREAMS Center for Arts Education.
