Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
- The Family Place teaches a well-organized and well-attended class of female adults, who almost exclusively
speak Spanish as a first language. A TESOL internship here would be an especially good match for Spanish speakers, as that would
enable you to help with home visits and assessments.
- Family Literacy Program Work alongside seasoned professional English teachers at this program hosted by Mary’s
Center. While adult English language learners are in classes, their children are cared
for in the same building. The adult classroom would make a great TESOL practicum placement.
- DC Jobs with Justice This organization reaches out to day laborers by organizing volunteers to teach them
English as they wait to be picked up for jobs in the Home Depot parking lot! The classes
are dynamic and interactive, since students come and go, literally, by the minute.
This environment will help a teacher to flesh out an array of activities that do not
rely on homework, writing, or textbooks.
