The Graduate Certificate in Teaching English as a New Language is intended primarily for students working toward a graduate degree in English and for practicing teachers who wish to be trained in teaching English to nonnative speakers. It also serves people who are preparing to live abroad or who wish to facilitate their employment abroad, and those who have technical or business expertise and wish to work with nonnative speakers in professional settings. The required courses will familiarize students with the major theoretical foundations of teaching English as a new and foreign language. Students will become acquainted with ENL pedogogy and resources and will acquire experience by teaching ENL learners in real classrooms. The TENL certificate can stand alone as a separate credential or be integrated with the requirements of the M.A. or M.A.T. program in English.Course Requirements
