More than 1.7 billion people in the world currently learn and use English worldwide, and for more than 2/3 of those people English is not their first language. The continued increase of English learners worldwide has led to an increased need for qualified English teachers.
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a rapidly growing field. TESOL courses equip students and professionals for English teaching overseas, in U.S. schools, in community or church-based ESL programs, through social work organizations, and in nonprofit outreach to immigrants, refugees, and English learners born in the U.S.
