March 25, 2014

Lisle, Illinois ~ Licensed English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers seeking an ESL endorsement should attend a virtual information session to learn more about Benedictine University’s ESL Endorsement program at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 26 and Friday, April 4.

Organized through the University’s National Moser Center for Adult Learning, the virtual information session is an easy way to ask questions and gain more detailed information about the program, admissions criteria and delivery from a live online admissions counselor. Both phone and Internet connections are necessary to participate.

Benedictine’s ESL Endorsement program can be finished in approximately nine instructional months. The program awards new students who have not taken any previous coursework at Benedictine with an Educator Scholarship, which allows them to take their first course tuition-free.

The program is for ESL licensed teachers who need to earn their ESL endorsement. Classes will be held in Naperville, Oswego and Lake County. Attendees of the virtual information session will have their application fee waived.

To learn about more programs at the National Moser Center for Adult Learning and to RSVP for the information session, call (877) 353-9622 or email adultenrollment@ben.edu.
