TEACHING ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS (TELL) CERTIFICATE
If you’ve ever struggled learning a second language, you know what non-native English speakers go through as they seek to learn, understand and use English. Be part of the language-learning solution with Post University’s Graduate Certificate in Teaching English Language Learners (TELL) program. Whether it’s to help immigrants here in the States or to facilitate learning for organizations that teach English abroad, you’ll learn what it takes to let their voices be heard and understood.
Program Objective: To prepare you for an educational career teaching English to speakers of other languages.
Program Description: Explore the complexity involved in helping non-native speakers of all ages learn how, or refine their ability to, speak the English language. This 15-credit graduate certificate in TELL will give you the knowledge, learning theories and skills you need to teach grammar, syntax and everyday usage to students whose first language is not English.
Program Outcomes: Upon graduation, you will receive a graduate-level certificate and be prepared to work in a variety of educational ESL settings.
Students who wish to enroll in this graduate certificate program are required to have a bachelor’s degree.
NOTE: The 15 credit hours earned from this TELL graduate certificate program may be applied toward Post University’s 30-credit-hour Master of Education with a concentration in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
The Graduate Certificate in Teaching English Language Learners is not designed to fulfill the educational requirements for any educational credential, such as a state teacher’s license or TESOL certification. Professional credentials vary by state and include requirements outside of education, which may include exams, background checks, work experience, and more.

My Post online experience has been fantastic. From students to faculty, they’re not going to let you fail. They’re always there to help you out.
I am grateful to have been a part of Post’s Honors Program. The small class sizes and culturally enriched trips opens students up to a different side of learning.
I knew the second I got accepted that I wanted to attend Post. It was a great four years. I put a lot into my time there and I got a lot in return.
Going to school online and being in the military was a challenge, but I really appreciate all the faculty and staff here at Post University. They really helped me get through being a distant learning student.
