The School of Languages trains students interested in teaching English as a second language. Our well-respected TESOL degree program and certificate program give our students the means to design and execute a curriculum. The School of Languages also provides foreign language instruction, including English as a foreign language (ESL), for all colleges of The New School. If you're looking to improve your English or study another language, consider our certificate-granting ESL and language programs. We even offer ESL courses specialized for particular fields of study, including music, design, and food.
