TESOL Program

The TESOL program prepares students to work with English Learners in various contexts. TESOL students take classes in language and linguistics, second language acquisition theory and teaching methods, and they participate in a culminating practicum experience that allows them to put what they have learned into practice.

The pictures are from EDT 437/537: Second Language Learning and Teaching, a class in which students study the cognitive and social factors involved in second language acquisition and the research on how to foster language acquisition in a classroom setting.
