Welcome to Applied Linguistics and TESOL

  • Welcome to the TESOL

    Welcome to the Applied Linguistics (AL) and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Program at Teachers College, Columbia University. The AL and TESOL program is interested in questions related to the nature of language as a biological, physical, or psychological phenomenon, as well as to questions concerning how language is used by native speakers and language learners as an interactional, social, or cultural phenomenon. The AL and TESOL program is also deeply concerned with how first and second languages are learned, taught, and assessed in a wide range of real-world or laboratory contexts.

    Save-the-Date: Final TESOL/AL Roundtable Collaborative Research Event
    Join the TESOL/AL Roundtable for our last research workshop of the academic year. We're planning on talking about what happens when you complete a research project. How do you go about sharing and presenting your findings? How do you determine future directions based on questions you still have?

    Also, we invite the first year students (soon to be second years!) to bring in any program/research/etc.-related questions you have for the current second years. We'll have an informal panel to make sure you all enter your next year like rockstars.

    Tuesday, March 3rd
    7:30-8:30pm
    Russell Hall 305
