Teaching English Abroad

November 14, 2011

Teaching English in another country is becoming a popular post-graduation career option, one that is exciting, rewarding and even life-changing.

The School of Education TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Masters Degree Program is joining with the English Department to host an Informational panel discussion about teaching English abroad. The event will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in Schulz 3001. This event is free and open to community.

Panelists include SSU students and graduates who have traveled and have lived around the world while teaching English. They will discuss their personal experiences and answer questions. 

Faculty will be on hand to discuss what programs SSU offers to prepare students for teaching English overseas, what countries are looking for English teachers, and what qualifications are necessary for getting a good position.
