MSUM’s Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) program offers a variety of learning opportunities outside of the classroom, from required off-site teaching practicums to experiential learning activities.
The English Language Program works closely with the university’s International Student Services office to partner TESL students with non-native English speakers, providing students tutoring experience while helping our international students improve their language skills.
You will find a ‘home away from home’ through Students Internationally Together, which brings together international and American students to create a sense of family and belonging for all.
A Learning Community will help you develop strong connections with faculty and peers and increases your academic success. The Global Connections Learning Community is for American, international and exchange students of any major who wish to live together, are interested in foreign languages, and would like to study, travel or work abroad.
You can impact your community while gaining valuable teaching experience by volunteering with the local Giving + Learning program, which matches volunteers with English language learners in order to foster a welcoming community for those new to the Fargo-Moorhead area.
CHARISM is a neighborhood center that provides support and outreach programs for at-risk children, youth and adults. CHARISM relies on college students like you to be mentors, tutors and volunteers who work with children after school.
Our majors frequently tutor students in NDSU’s Intensive English Language Program to help non-native speakers achieve English proficiency.
