Prepare to Teach ESOL in Grades K-12
The ESOL graduate degree curriculum includes a range of ESOL courses that thoroughly prepare teachers to teach English to speakers of other languages in grades K-12. SNHU’s reputation for delivering quality education programs and preparing successful classroom teachers will give you the edge you need for a successful career teaching ESOL.
The ESOL curriculum is designed to impart key skills for teaching English to nonnative speakers. Gain the tools to be an effective teacher of ESOL classes or in a "pull-in/push-out," inclusive classroom.
ESOL Courses Lead to Student - Teaching Practicum
In addition to the 11 ESOL degree courses delivered on our Manchester, N.H., campus, you will complete a 16-week student-teaching practicum. Passing the Praxis I exam is required prior to your acceptance into the Teacher Certification Program.
During your student-teaching experience you will intern full time under the direct supervision of a classroom teacher, gradually taking on the role of the classroom teacher. All other ESOL graduate degree course work must be completed prior to beginning your student-teaching placement.
Certification to Teach ESOL
Upon the successful completion of your ESOL courses and student teaching practicum, you will be eligible for New Hampshire state endorsement in Teaching English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) for grades K-12.
Students must already have completed two semesters of a college-level foreign language study or its equivalent prior to completing the ESOL graduate degree curriculum at SNHU and being certified.
