APU TESOL Summer Program

This program offers you the opportunity to teach English in Myanmar (formerly Burma) and complete a practicum in teaching English at the undergraduate or graduate level. Participants spend two weeks in the former capital, Yangon, interacting closely with local Karen, an ethnolinguistic minority, and teaching at the Karen Baptist Theological Seminary (KBTS) followed by a three-day trip to a destination such as Inle Lake or Bagan to explore the life and culture outside the city. It is here where your knowledge, faith, and service can come together in a tangible way to encounter a space where God’s call and your gifts combine. For an application and more information regarding this trip, please contact Mary Wong in the Department of Global Studies, Sociology, and TESOL at (626) 815-3844.

Available Course(s):


  • TESL 456 Teaching Practicum (Up to 30 ministry credits for service-learning are available.)
