Where: UGA's Gwinnett campus

When: Saturdays

The four course modules in this classroom program will give you a solid theoretical foundation for teaching English, as well as hands-on classroom experience and job-searching skills. You will learn about intercultural communication, linguistics, and curriculum and lesson plan development. Successful completion of the program will prepare you to work as a teacher, trainer, tutor or cross-cultural communicator both at home and abroad. The modules – each of which includes outside research, projects, observation and portfolio development – can be taken in any order.
