Teachers College, Columbia University
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Certificate Program

With more than 15 years of experience offering the TESOL Certificate Program, we are continuing our rigorous program in a blended learning format, starting Summer 2015. 

The program will include approximately 5 weeks of semi-synchronous online instruction and 4 weeks of onsite instruction at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. 

This intensive program offers a unique balance of theory and practice, including supervised student teaching and senior teacher mentoring. Students will gain insight into teaching methodologies, theories of language learning, assessment, linguistics structures and cross-cultural communication and will put their knowledge into practice while teaching in our Community Language Program. 

This intensive program is ideal for recent college graduates, current teachers who want to improve their skills, and career-changers.
