This is just a quick post about self-education. I have recently started a TESOL course from Global Leadership College. TESOL certification, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, should help me in my English language tutoring. I have a master's in linguistics, so much of the information in my course is not new, but second language learning was not my focus, so I hope to learn something. This course is primarily geared to teaching English abroad, but I expect the certification to nonetheless come in handy stateside.
I have also been thinking lately about supplementing my English teaching skills with knowledge of Spanish, so TESOL certification could help me spend an extended amount of time in a Spanish-speaking country to reach that goal in a fun and productive way.
