Yes. MIIS TESOL candidates have participated in both U.S.-based and international internships. We can also work with you to assist you in developing your own short-term professional experience. There are many opportunities to teach part-time in the Monterey area, including at one of the three area adult schools, one of the two local community colleges, or at MIIS itself. However, we don't recommend that you teach during your first semester. You can contact Ms. Edy Rhodes in the Center for Advising and Career Services for more information on this point.
