Community Language Program

Welcome to the Community Language Program (CLP)

UPDATE (April, 2022)

This summer, we will offer even more in-person courses and also keep a couple courses online. CLP students who take in-person classes in summer 2022 need to show proof of being fully vaccinated for COVID (including booster shot(s) if eligible) before they can attend Day 1 of class. Students who attended in-person fall 2021 and/or spring 2022 classes must show vaccination records again. 

We will send further details to students registered for in-person classes closer to the summer semester. 

CLP Mission Statement

  1. Provide MA students in TESOL with the opportunity to practice teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) as part of their required MA TESOL curriculum.
  2. Offer English and foreign language instruction to adult learners of diverse nationalities at Teachers College, Columbia University, and surrounding New York communities. 
  3. Serve as a linguistic research laboratory for AL/TESOL students and faculty. 
  4. Provide AL/TESOL students with opportunities to gain hands-on experience in other areas of language education, such as language program development and administration, curriculum design and review, assessment, and teacher supervision.
