AL 410 - TEFL/TESOL Practicum

The TEFL/TESOL Practicum is an intensive, four-week professional training program (120 hours) leading to a professional certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) or Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). It covers all essential aspects of English language teaching from a practical classroom perspective. It offers concrete experience with methods and techniques, reflecting current communicative principles of language teaching and learning. This program is ideal for new entrants to the field, as well as for working teachers who wish to gain a professional qualification or to update their methodology. Although this is an undergraduate course, students who opt to complete an extended capstone project may also earn six credits of advanced standing toward the SMC MATESOL program, subject to all other eligibility requirements.
