The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement Program at Oregon State University focuses on helping Oregon's pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade (PK-12) teachers learn how to effectively work with students who are learning English as an additional language.
Currently licensed teachers and candidates in one of OSU's teacher preparation programs can earn the ESOL endorsement as an addition to their Oregon teaching licenses.
We offer on-campus classes in Corvallis and Bend, as well as online classes that are specifically designed for licensed teachers.
Are you bilingual in English and Spanish? You can earn an ESOL endorsement and a Dual Language specialization at the same time.
The ESOL coursework is based on six core domains from the Oregon Administrative Rules: language; culture; planning, implementing, and managing instruction; assessment; professionalism; and technology.
Our curriculum is driven by the educational needs of emergent bilingual students.
