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.  

Two Types of TESOL Certificates

Our two TESOL/EL certificate options make it possible for you to get certified efficiently and effectively depending on your experience and needs. Both are available completely online in the same convenient format. If you already have experience teaching English learners as a licensed teacher, our Accelerated TESOL/EL program is for you. But if you’re just starting out with English learners or don’t have a background in Education, you’ll want our full-length program, which can still be completed in eight months.

Huntington University is an approved provider of the EL License.
