The New School's Certificate in Teaching English (CTE) program offers a path into a field of growing opportunity for students passionate about cross-cultural exchange, languages, teaching, travel, and community engagement. 


A leader in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) training for more than 25 years, we've refined our certificate-level training to give our students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in adult education programs, nonprofits, private language schools and tutoring centers, businesses, libraries, and community colleges.

Key Features 

  • The Teaching English certificate at The New School is designed for aspiring and working ESL teachers whose personal or professional goals don't require a master's degree. 
  • The five-course curriculum has a practical orientation based on the theory and techniques of communicative, student-centered, and culturally sensitive teaching. 
  • This program equips you with skills readily applicable to classroom teaching and tutoring here and abroad—where the demand for English language teachers has never been greater.

Programme Structure

  • All spring 2021 courses will be online. The semester will run from January 19 to May 10. 
  • Courses need not be taken in the order listed unless a prerequisite is indicated in the course description.
