About

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program of University of Pennsylvania

Overview

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program of University of Pennsylvania offers a broad range of course work connecting theory with practice, and stresses understanding the role and function of English language teaching as it relates to the political and social climate of today’s world.

In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of educational linguistics and the TESOL field, students take courses covering methods of teaching, evaluation, and curriculum and materials development. Additionally, they gain a thorough grounding in linguistics, which includes work in the structure and development of the English language, first and second language acquisition, and sociolinguistics. Course content is based on research into the nature of language learning, the needs of specific populations of language learners, language and intercultural studies, and pedagogical approaches.  

While there are two courses designed as practicum courses, students also engage in fieldwork as tutors, interns, and teachers in a number of core and elective courses. Student-teaching is supported by individual mentorship and debriefs designed to stimulate discussion of current issues in teaching methods and language learning. Students are required to teach English as a second language for the culminating internship.
