TESOL Certificate Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Certification

Mission Statement

Through a unique synergy of theory and practice, the Teachers College TESOL Certificate Program prepares graduates to teach English to adult speakers of other languages. Students are taught to adapt and apply principles of communicative language teaching to a variety of settings and learner populations. We emphasize sensitivity to teacher and student diversity, which can include factors such as: cultural, religious, linguistic, educational, and socio-economic background; race and ethnicity; and sexual orientation and gender expression. Graduates are prepared to become active, reflective, and collaborative TESOL professionals in local and international contexts.
