Methodologies for language acquisition.
Reach across cultures with our Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) training programs. Whether you plan to assist new arrivals to America within local schools or are preparing for an international mission, Cornerstone PGS can help.
Our Master of Arts in TESOL program, presented in a blended program, teaches practical strategies for instructing across a language barrier along with theoretical knowledge that helps you understand language development. And, like all Cornerstone programs, the curriculum keeps Christ at the center, for a training program that supports your professional goals and your personal values.
TESOL Program Goals
The TESOL program is designed to produce graduates who can:
- Understand the structure of languages, their development within social contexts, and theories relating to second language acquisition
- Make connections between current TESOL environments and historical efforts to teach across language barriers
- Successfully integrate traditional and technologically-enhanced instructional techniques into an overall TESOL educational strategy
- Develop a research proposal and an action research project, relevant to the field of TESOL
