If you are fascinated by language and have a desire to teach English overseas or domestically to those from another culture, George Fox University's Teaching English to Students of Other Languages program may be an ideal fit.
The university’s TESOL minor covers linguistics, cross-cultural communication, language acquisition and teaching methods. Graduates of the program have gone abroad to live and teach English in locales that include Mongolia, Honduras, South Korea, China and Indonesia. Others have taught English to adult immigrants living in the U.S., including in local church and community program settings.
The 21- to 23-credit-hour program was designed by faculty emerita Martha Iancu, who, after teaching TESOL courses at the university for 24 years, was among those honored for excellence in TESOL education at the 2014 TESOL International Convention.
