Advanced Certificate in Teaching English Language Learners


Are you a certified teacher seeking to work more effectively with English language learners?  A college graduate seeking to teach English abroad?

If so, the ADVANCED CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IN Teaching English Language Learners (TELL) is for you!


The new two-track TELL program provides just the right balance of content knowledge, current research, personal reflection, and hands-on practice to help you work more effectively with English language learners in and outside the United States.  You will study in the lovely Mid-Hudson Valley with faculty committed to student-centered teaching in a global context.

The program can be completed easily in two semesters.

TELL Certificate students can apply up to nine credits to selected graduate programs that do lead to initial and professional teaching certification.  (The TELL program does not lead directly to NYS teaching certification.)
