A TESOL certificate is a ticket to the world! Having a TESOL certificate will open many academic and professional doors. Thinking of applying for Fulbright or another scholarship program? Having a TESOL certificate makes you a competitive, informed, and educated applicant.
The Hampshire College TESOL Teacher Training Institute is a four-week intensive summer program designed for students and community members hoping to volunteer, teach English, pursue a new career path, or travel the world.
This TESOL program is unique, drawing from the Hampshire College philosophy of interactive, collaborative, and experiential education. Our program allows participants to be a teacher, student, and linguist. Together we explore the different elements of the TESOL field, build your language teaching skills, and volunteer to teach English within the larger Hampshire County community. Participants who successfully complete this course will leave with a Hampshire College TESOL certificate, professional development materials (CV, professional portfolio), a collection of co-created lesson plans, a teaching cohort, a variety of teaching opportunities, and much more.
