What is English teaching?
If you love to read and write, and dream of a career where you can inspire others to share that love — then teaching English may be the right path for you. The English teaching program builds your foundation in literature and grammar, human development and learning, the education system and teaching practices. Through hands-on learning in real classroom settings, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills that will prepare you to pursue a career as a middle- or high school-level English educator.
