This program will begin to prepare you to become an effective ESL teacher. The TESL minor and certificate will also prepare you for further study in second language acquisition at the graduate level. You will learn the structure of the English language and best practices for teaching and learning a language in both formal and informal settings.
Curriculum and requirements
We generally recommend that students take the courses in the following order: CI 3610, 3611W, 3612, 3613, one per semester. It is, however, possible to take courses concurrently with one exception. The required linguistics course (CI 3610, LING 3001, or LING 5001) should be completed prior to enrolling in CI 3612 Introduction to Pronunciation and Grammar for ESL Teachers).
