So You Want To Be An ESOL Teacher?



S-TESL students earn Seattle Pacific University credit while working towards TESOL Certificates and/or the WA State Endorsements in ELL or Bilingual Education. Credits may be transferred into MA programs too.

Whether you intend to teach overseas or in the U.S, in a K-12 environment or in adult education, the School of TESL can help you meet your goal. Our University partnership assures program quality. Our TESOL certificate is 120 hours, the baseline international employers expect.



  • This is probably one of the best programs you could ever attend. I apply what I learned to my classroom teaching on a daily basis. The instruction adheres to the Active Theory of Learning model, so you listen/read, discuss and apply the knowledge every day. S-TESL advocates communicative language teaching which is easily understood and converted to any class you may be teaching. I have been teaching now for a year and find that even most of my other Master’s program courses have not helped to prepare me for teaching English like this course has. I strongly endorse S-TESL, but be prepared to work your rear-end off for 4 weeks! It is worth it, though.
