Teaching English as a Second Language to Adults (TESL) Program (R400) 2015-2016 Certificate Full Time


The TESL program provides a solid grounding in both the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching English as a second language to adults. The courses deal with key concepts in phonetics and phonology, linguistics, sociolinguistics, language teaching methods and grammar in the context of teaching English as a second or foreign language (ESL / EFL). First-semester courses present an overview of the theories and practice of ESL / EFL teaching. Second-semester courses emphasize practical hands-on training in a collaborative setting.
