Boston College LSOE offers a certificate in Teaching English Language Learners.  Candidates should be working toward a licensure in an education field (early childhood, elementary, secondary, reading and others). This program is designed to prepare mainstream teachers to work with bilingual learners/English Language Learners in their mainstream classroom settings. The certificate requires undergraduate students take two courses:  ED346 Teaching Bilingual Students and ED 308 Bilingualism in School and Communities.  In addition, candidates need to do a field experience in a classroom that includes bilingual learners.
