Teaching English as a Second Language

This 60-hour program is designed for individuals interested in teaching adult learners of ESL or EFL. Twenty hours of the program will be in a traditional classroom setting and 40 hours will be delivered online. The program is designed to give trainees both fundamental and practical knowledge of ESL teaching. Trainees learn a variety of language teaching techniques and methodologies. Techniques for teaching each language skill area (grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, pronunciation and culture) will also be covered in individual modules. As part of the 20 hours of traditional classroom teaching, a 10-hour teaching practicum will be arranged. At the end of the program, trainees will present a portfolio and will be evaluated teaching a lesson during the practicum. This course will enable the student to teach in community and private ESL programs that do not require a bachelor’s degree in ESL or formal ESL public school add on certificate.

Course modules include:

  • Lesson Planning and Classroom Management
  • Teaching Reading/Writing
  • Teaching Listening/Speaking
  • Teaching Pronunciation
  • Teaching Grammar
  • Practicum to be arranged

This course is self-paced; however, three in-class meetings are recommended. See below.
