Teaching Responsibilities

Students may teach a variety of subjects and grade levels. Because English is one of India’s national languages, in most cases they would teach in their own licensing area. Further, it may be possible to fulfill practicum requirements in India for the ESL/ENL license addition. Others may be possible as well, depending on the placement/license.

Other Considerations

Proficiency in Hindi and/or other local languages is not required, but participants are encouraged to learn basic words and phrases before they leave for their placement.
