Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

NYU Steinhardt's programs in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) prepare you for a rewarding career as a teacher, researcher, or curriculum developer in English as a second language, working with learners from diverse linguistic, educational, and ethnic backgrounds. You'll build a strong foundation in language, literacy, and applied linguistics, and acquire a range of second-language teaching approaches, as well as hands-on preparation for teaching at different levels. 

Based on a reflective model of teaching that incorporates collaboration with colleagues, students, and community, our programs take an additive view of second language and culture acquisition.
