A student's words...
"The (ESOL) program has equipped me with crucial skills that I have been able to use in my student teaching placement. I have learned so much about ELLs (English Language Learners) and how to make my students feel more comfortable in the classroom. I feel well-prepared to enter into the teaching profession and implement valuable and effective strategies. - Megan McCann
The Division of Teacher Education offers endorsements in ESOL and Bilingual/ESOL. The program leads to an add-on endorsement to an Oregon teaching license and can be completed in three ways: by itself, or in conjunction with an undergraduate program or graduate program.
Candidates for the ESOL endorsement are required to pass the NES ESOL exam. Further information about the test can be found on the ESOL test registration page. A free online test preparation course is available via https://online.wou.edu/. To register, login to Moodle using the WOU Portal and your PawPrint username and password. Select the "All Courses" link and search for ESOL NES.2013 ESOL Summer Program in the Americas
