San Diego State University will offer two sessions during summer for a program through its American Language Institute that prepares novice instructors to successfully live and teach English overseas.
The TESL/TEFL Certificate program will take place weekdays, June 5-30 and July 10-Aug. 4. This 130-hour program combines a solid teaching foundation with hands-on practical classroom experience.
Students will benefit from specialized sessions in language acquisition theory, understanding the English-language learner, classroom atmosphere and management, lesson planning, grammar for teachers, and more.
"The TESL/TEFL program at ALI exceeded my expectations," said program graduate Barbara Van Dyken. "The instructors were knowledgeable and easy to follow. The opportunities for teaching and interacting with the ESL students were plentiful. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience."
Added program graduate Zachary York: "During the time I spent at SDSU's American Language Institute, I discovered the intersection of my passions and education. I embarked on my journey not knowing where I would land; sights set on using my skill set to better the world. ALI has given me the keys to the kingdom and the ability to unlock the potential of my abilities. I have found what I am to do; what makes my heart sing."
More than 500 graduates have been employed in 40-plus countries with the help of this ALI program that offers worldwide job placement assistance. Cost of the program is $2,775.
