Overview - TESL
The Teaching English as a Second Language Program (TESL) has an established reputation for combining practical skills with theory enabling graduates to become confident, creative, and effective instructors.
All classes are offered onsite in the evening, during the day in our Summer Intensive program, and online. For details regarding time and locations, please read Course Formats in our course description section.
The courses required for WAL's TESL and Bilingual Education Certificates meet all state requirements for the ELL and Bilingual Endorsement. Credits are awarded by City University of Seattle. City University of Seattle is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
Enrollment is open throughout the year and students can start with any course. After sending WAL your transcript(s) for review, as well as a $45 application fee (new student registrations only), students may start the program with any class, and are welcome to mix-and-match evening, daytime and online courses.
