You will get to know the classmates that you'll be interacting with in future semesters online and will sample the joys of the surrounding area which includes Burlington, Lake Champlain, the Green Mountains, and Boston and Montreal, which are just a day-trip away. In the second summer, you will reunite with your friends to finish the TESOL program, all within four semesters! If you are in no hurry, you may also complete the program part-time at a more leisurely pace.
