Beginning this spring term, Continuing Education at PLU is introducing Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) certification. This internationally recognized program prepares individuals for English teaching, particularly for overseas opportunities.

“For those aspiring to teach abroad, TESOL certification is invaluable in securing international employment,” said Angenette Pickett Call, Program Manager for Continuing Education.

“Aligned with PLU’s commitment to global education, this certification expands knowledge and enhances the ability to teach English domestically and internationally.”

The TESOL online certification is a comprehensive qualification that provides English teaching theories and methods and equips individuals for effective instruction in diverse settings, be it traditional classrooms or online platforms.

Structured to offer a well-rounded educational experience, TESOL certification empowers individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel as English educators. Graduates emerge as highly qualified English teachers ready to impact the field as language instructors at home or abroad.

PLU community members, including students, alumni, and employees, qualify for a $200 discount.
