Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Certification Course
The TESOL Certificate Course will provide the most essential knowledge and skills necessary to teach the English language to speakers of other languages overseas. Different from existing the traditional Teaching English as a Foreign Language Programs which primarily train instructors to teach English overseas, this TESOL Certificate Course will educate teachers to address the linguistic, theoretical, and practical aspects of teaching English to speakers of other languages with a focus on the learning styles, goals, and needs of the individual learner.
The Midwest Education Group (MEG) offers a certificate program in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Four weeks of training and a practicum provide the required knowledge in language, theory, culture, and classroom teaching of English abroad.
