TESOL Certificate, Part 1: Teach English Now!
Learn theory and the practical strategies of English as a Second Language teaching.
Demonstrate basic foundational principles, recognize second or foreign language learning theories, and design and plan lessons to teach English as a second or foreign language effectively. This specialization is the first of two specializations that make up the TESOL Certificate from Arizona State University. In this specialization, you will learn about the basic foundational principles of language acquisition and the basic techniques founded upon those principles. It will describe second or foreign language theories, and basic studies in second language acquisition and their pedagogical implications. It will elaborate upon basic design for lesson plans and provide access to professional resources. In the final Capstone Project, in collaboration with Arizona State University’s Global Launch, you will apply the skills you learned by designing a lesson plan which includes learning outcomes, assessments, materials, classroom management techniques and the learning activities themselves. When you complete this specialization, go on to the second specialization in order to complete your TESOL certificate experience!

第 1 门课程
马上开始教英语！基本原则即将开课的班次：Feb 27 — Apr 17。
- English, Spanish
课程概述Through a series of engaging metaphors and stories, prospective and current EFL/ESL teachers will identify, summarize, and evaluate 7 basic language learning paradigms. Learners will be presented information on such foundational principles as motivation, risk taking, two different modes of learning, and balancing the teacher profession. Learners are also given an understanding of basic techniques founded on those principles, such as teacher talk, looking “ridiculous” in order to lower the affective filter, and networking. With these foundational principles in mind, ESL/EFL teachers will scrutinize common assumptions about language learning by comparing how they stack up to research-based core principles.
