Wenjia Meng, MAT-TESOL ’16
“The TESOL program at USC is fascinating and creative. I especially liked the English Language Learning Design, Teaching and Technology course, and the fieldwork placements at actual schools. The unique experience of teaching Mandarin to native students via the online system left a deep impression.”
