Language Program Director

The Applied Linguistics & TESOL Programs at Teachers College, Columbia University seeks a Full-Time Language Program Director.  This position entails directing two related programs: the Community Language Program (CLP) and the TESOL Certificate Program (TCP). The CLP provides English and foreign language instruction to adult learners and is an onsite language lab for students and faculty in TESOL and Applied Linguistics. The TCP offers a Summer full-time intensive program as well as a part-time Fall-Spring program.


The Director is responsible for providing academic leadership for both the CLP & TCP academic programs in conjunction with the Applied Linguistics and TESOL Program faculty sponsor. The Director will thus oversee the implementation of the existing CLP & TCP academic programs including all efforts involving teacher supervision, teacher mentorship and professional development, curriculum development, and assessment.  The Director will also spearhead any curricular reform, in conjunction with the faculty sponsor.

The Director will also be responsible for providing administrative leadership for the two programs, including representing the CLP/TCP at the program and College levels, and serving as liaison between the CLP/TCP and other administrative offices.  The Director will also be responsible for overseeing the CLP/TCP budget in conjunction with the faculty liaison, and for hiring and supervising staff and course instructors including doctoral fellows, managing work schedules for CLP fellows, supervising CLP placement testing, preparing annual reports of each program, and overseeing efforts regarding student recruitment, and marketing. Finally, the Director will work closely with the Program Manager, who is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day administrative operations of the two programs. 

The successful candidate may also be invited to teach one or more courses in the Applied Linguistics & TESOL MA programs (for additional pay) depending on qualifications.

I am pleased to announce the launch of the recruitment campaign for the 2017-2018 Teaching Assistant Program in France (TAPIF).

Every year, the French Ministry of Education and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. offer approximately 1,200 teaching assistantships for American citizens and permanent residents of the United States to teach English in public schools across all regions of metropolitan France and in the overseas departments of French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Réunion.

Assistants are assigned a teaching schedule of 12 classroom hours per week that may be divided among up to three schools.  Classes are conducted in English.  The teaching assistant may conduct all or part of a class, typically leading conversations in English.  Duties may include serving as a resource person in conversation groups, providing small group tutorials, and giving talks related to American studies in English classes.  Assignments vary depending on the school’s needs, the assistant’s abilities, and the educational level to which he or she is assigned (elementary or secondary).

The 1,200 American English Language Assistants make up a significant cohort of the over 4,500 Language Assistants in France every year who teach 15 languages and represent 60 countries. See an infographic of the Language Assistant Program.

Facilitated and administered by the Centre international d'études pédagogiques (CIEP), not only is this program an important investment in robust foreign language education in France, it is also a critical investment in the promotion of the French language abroad and the development of multilingual, international professionals and educators across the globe. 

Teaching Assistants are primarily recent graduates; however we are now accepting applications from candidates between the ages of 20 and 35.

We hope, as in years past, to recruit qualified candidates from your university as Teaching Assistants in France for the 2017-2018 school year. I would greatly appreciate your help in circulating this information about TAPIF. 

Applications for the 2017-2018 school year are NOW AVAILABLE online at

Duration: 11-Jul-2016 to 19-Aug-2016
Compensation: Paid: Attractive compensation
Internship Location: Princeton, New Jersey, USA
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum
Special Qualifications: Job Requirements: The TOEFL iBT test and the TOEIC tests are global measures, so ETS actively seeks candidates who can bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the work. The ELL summer internship workforce includes undergraduate students, graduate students, teachers, and professors. Interns must have a very high degree of fluency in English but do not need to be native speakers, nor do they need to be U.S. citizens. Non-U.S. citizens must have appropriate work visas. All interns must have excellent writing skills. The work requires verbal precision and sensitivity to nuance, analytic skill, attention to detail, and receptiveness to instruction. Interns must be able to work well individually and collaboratively, carefully consider constructive feedback, and manage their time effectively to meet targets.

The English Language Learning (ELL) group in the Assessment Development Division of Educational Testing Service (ETS) expects to hire approximately 35 interns for the summer of 2016.


ELL summer interns will produce materials for use on large-scale, high-stakes standardized tests of English language proficiency. Each intern will work on one of the following:

– TOEFL iBT® Test
The TOEFL iBT test is taken by nonnative speakers of English who are planning to apply to a college or university in an English-speaking country.

– TOEIC® Tests
The TOEIC tests are taken principally by people who need to communicate with both native and nonnative speakers of English in the context of the global workplace.

The test development work is intellectually challenging and rewarding. The work may include:

– writing items that test knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension
– identifying academic texts which are suitable for testing reading comprehension
– creating conversations and talks that test listening comprehension
– developing scenarios and prompts that allow candidates to demonstrate their speaking or writing skills


The six-week program begins on Monday, July 11, and ends on Friday, August 19. Interns are expected to work 8:30–5:00, Monday through Friday, for the whole program, and will receive attractive compensation. All work is conducted at the ETS Rosedale campus in Princeton, New Jersey. Interns must provide or arrange their own housing and transportation.
