The Certificate in Teaching English as a New Language (TENL) is an 18-hour program intended primarily for students working toward an IPFW degree, especially education majors who wish to be trained in teaching English to non-native speakers. It will also serve those who wish to facilitate their employment abroad and those who have technical or business experience and wish to work with non-native speakers in professional settings. The required courses will familiarize students with the major theoretical foundations of teaching English as a second and foreign language and acquaint them with the relevant pedagogy. Students will acquire experience in teaching non-native speakers in appropriate classrooms. The certificate can stand alone as a separate credential or be integrated with the requirements of the B.A. program in English.
