Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

The Kansas Department of Education (KSDE) only requires a teacher to pass the ESOL Praxis test to successfully add the ESOL endorsement to his/her license. Our ESOL Certificate program was developed to prepare both current teachers and pre-service teacher candidates to take the ESOL Praxis test. The certificate program includes three courses for a total of six credit hours.

ESOL Certificate courses include:
TEEL 673 ESOL Cert. - Methods & Materials (2 credit hours)
TEEL 673 ESOL Cert. - Linguistics (3 credit hours)
TEEL 673 ESOL Cert. - Praxis II Prep (1 credit hour)

Upon successful completion of all three courses, a teacher or candidate earns an ESOL Certificate from the Department of Teacher Education. If a teacher or candidate chooses not to earn the certificate, he/she may take the ESOL Praxis Test Prep course to help study and prepare for the ESOL Praxis exam.

If you are a pre-service FHSU teacher candidate: register through Tiger Enroll for ESOL Certificate courses.
