TESOL - TEACH ENGLISH TO SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES
The Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Seminar is one of the most accepted and exciting tools available for going to the nations to teach conversational English, even nations that are closed to the Gospel. It is a tool that can bring hope and a future to many students, as an ability to speak English opens the way to better employment and further education. It also gives you a chance to “be the Gospel” and build lifelong relationships.
The TESOL Seminar is designed to teach a native or near-native English speaker to work in a classroom setting teaching conversational English. It is an intensive program of academic principles and practical application, presenting a wide range of tools and teaching situations.
Our course consists of a minimum of 120 hours in the classroom and lab and a practicum that includes a minimum of ten hours student teaching.
Next School: To set date.
