ESL/EFL Teacher Preparation

The English Language Institute (ELI) offers courses which prepare students to teach English to speakers of other languages. All of these courses include a balance of theory and practice, as well as a strong emphasis on community engagement and service learning principles. Students in these courses gain practical life skills and learn how to successfully interact with individuals across cultures. Some discover a career!

Students who are sophomores, juniors, or seniors in all schools and majors are invited to join these fun, interactive, yet challenging courses. The only requirement is an interest in language, culture, and teaching, and a desire to meet people from different cultures.
