Educators and professionals in varied disciplines and settings gain strategies to promote successful instruction of adults who are learning English as a second language (ESL). Coursework explores adult learning theory, concepts in second language acquisition, and established ESL instruction techniques such as the communicative language teaching (CLT) approach. Students examine basic approaches and best practices for planning lessons, designing assessments, evaluating adult ESL learners, and creating effective, culturally respectful learning environments. Techniques apply to diverse settings including those where instructors and students do not share a common language. Credits earned from this certificate program may be applied toward Walden’s M.S. in Adult Learning with a specialization in Teaching Adults English as a Second Language .
