Academics

TESOL Certificate Program:

Programs in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) are designed to prepare teachers, and curriculum developers in English as a second language at all levels for teens and adults. Our programs are field-based, theory and experience based and are specialized on communicative methods of second language acquisition while incorporating collaboration with colleagues, students, and  affiliated colleges both in-campus or online.

We prepare professionals with a firm foundation in language, literacy, and applied linguistics along with an understanding of a range of second language teaching approaches that can be adjusted to suit the needs of different learner populations from diverse educational and ethnic backgrounds.

TEC Certificate Program: (Teaching English to Children)

Children between four and twelve years old are very different as language learners. In TEC we are looking how children learn at different stages of development and how activities in the classroom need to address their cognitive, motor, language and social development.  The age groups will be grouped as: 4 to 6 year-olds   7 to 9 year-olds   10 to 12 year-olds. Obviously children do not all fit neatly into categories and their development will depend on their personality, maturity and previous learning experiences. 

This program is 34 credits and is available in Teaching English to Children TEC,  Teaching French o Children TFC, Teaching Spanish to Children TSC, Teaching Chinese to Children TCC and Teaching Arabic to Children TAC.
