According to the National Education Association, South Carolina experienced a 300 percent growth in English language learners between 1995 and 2005. Furthermore, the National Assessment of Educational Progress notes that 71 percent of South Carolina's fourth grade English language learners were at below basic or basic level for math in 2011. That number increased to 81 percent when reading was assessed. As the number of English language learners in South Carolina continues to grow, teachers in subjects that range from math to music should consider obtaining an add-on certificate in English as a Second Language (ESL), Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), or a related field. An add-on certificate in an ESL-related field will not only prepare you to teach special ESL-only classes, but it can also give you an advantage in your current classroom.
Anderson University's English as a New Language (ENL) add-on certificate is designed to help currently-licensed teachers improve their instruction by giving them the tools they need to teach non-native English speakers. The culturally saturated program includes a TESOL practicum, instruction in applied linguistics, and information about language acquisition. Columbia International University offers an advanced certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) aimed at individuals wanting to teach English as a method of outreach. The program is appropriate for would-be adult educators. Finally, at the University of South Carolina-Upstate, teachers can earn an add-on certificate in TESOL that requires proficiency in another language before beginning the program. Teachers can gain proficiency by taking language courses at the school.
