"I highly recommend this program to aspiring English language teachers. After completing the TESOL Certificate through UCSB Extension, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Mongolia where I made daily use of the practical classroom skills and background knowledge I gained. Now, as TESOL graduate student, that strong practical pedagogical foundation continues to give me a leg up."
