Welcome to the Center for International Foreign Language Teacher Education (CIFLTE)

The Center for International Foreign Language Teacher Education (CIFLTE) at Teachers College, Columbia University currently offers four programs: the TCSOL One-year Certificate program in New York City, the TCSOL/TESOL Summer Dual Certificate Programs in Beijing and in Osaka, and the Online Foreign Language Learning Program (COF). The first two programs are designed to offer state-of-the-art training to students and professionals interested in learning how to teach Chinese and/or English. The COF Program provides one-on-one tutoring in a number of languages in a blended format involving both face-to-face and online interactions. In addition, the center periodically offers workshops on research methodology and/or best instructional practices. Please feel free to browse our site to see current and former TCSOL events, newsletters, past student projects, testimonials from students and alumni, and other features of the programs offered at the Center.
