ESL: English as a Second Language Minor (M)
Imagine a student raising their hand in your classroom and asking you a question in a foreign language. This may be the case, more and more, as our culture blends with those from around the world, and immigration continues to increase. As an educator, we want you to feel confident as you help these students achieve their fullest potential. God made us in many different colors, with so many different voices. Use yours to help prepare these students for their bright futures.
Imagine the satisfaction of being able to help struggling students overcome language barriers! At Concordia, we can equip you to do this. Our minor in English as a Second Language program includes coursework in cross-cultural communication and basic English linguistics for teachers of language learners, as well as strategies for teaching these struggling students.
