Boston is home to 1.1 million immigrants. Can you think of the possibilities you have to bring hope to them if you knew how to teach them English?
God is bringing the nations to our doorstep. One of the most practical ways we can welcome these people is to give them tools to adapt to our culture, get jobs and gain an education. Learning how to speak English is the first place they'll start!
We invite you to attend our Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages Course ( or TESOL for short).
This 4-week intensive will instruct you in the basic theories and methods of teaching English.
One of our foundational values is to do first then teach so students will also teach others as they go through the training themselves. Contact TESOL school director for more information. TESOL@ywamboston.org
English has become the world’s common language, and throughout the world, non-English speakers are anxious to learn. For the English learner, language skills open doors to knowing neighbors, new jobs, and education. Many English-speaking workers have attempted to teach English, only to discover that being a native speaker does not in itself make one a good teacher of English. Learn to teach English!
What is TESOL?
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) course includes four weeks of intensive training in basic theories and methods of teaching English, intercultural communication for teachers, classroom management, how to work with different learning styles, testing, principles of language acquisition, as well as the sounds and grammar of English. An integral part of the training is the opportunity to practice teaching on campus during the course, meet needs of internationals within English-speaking countries, and residents in non-English speaking nations. Acquire a job skill that opens doors to hard-to-enter countries and possibly your own neighborhood.
