TESOL Program

Next Starting date: September 5th 2017

Introducing New York English Academy’s TESOL Program for American English

The New York English Academy TESOL program is inspired by the most renowned TESOL programs in the world, such as the Cambridge University CELTA and the Trinity College TESOL certificate. What will make NYEA’s TESOL program unique is that it is focused on American English -- a recognition of the distinct cultural and linguistic character of a language built over centuries by an international community of immigrants. NYEA’s TESOL program will show teachers how to teach The American Language.

Each teacher will concentrate on 8 areas:

  • Becoming an effective teacher of American English
  • Understanding the rules and conventions of The American Language
  • Teaching the four basic skills of American English: reading, writing, listening, and speaking
  • Understanding the difference between American and non-American English
  • Lesson planning for The American Language
  • Observing master teachers of American English
  • Observation and evaluation by master teachers of American English
  • Student needs analysis and customizing programs for American language learners
