ASU’s TEFL/TESOL Certificate Program at AUL




ASU’s TEFL/TESOL Certificate Program at AUL


In April 2022, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Azerbaijan University of Languages ​​(AUL) and Arizona State University (ASU), one of the most prestigious universities in the United States. According to the memorandum, ASU and AUL will provide joint training, with ASU online coursework and AUL in-person practicum for learners to earn a 150-hour TESOL certificate.


The terms TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) are used when English is taught in non-native countries.


English has become a global language in many areas, particularly, in education, politics, science, and technology, and is taught in more than 100 countries around the world as a second language. TEFL/TESOL program is a natural platform for the development of excellence in teaching English as a foreign/second language. The certificate awarded upon the successful completion of the program will provide an opportunity to teach English not only in Azerbaijan, but in any other country in the world.
