OPIE Faculty & Advisers

OPIE faculty are trained and experienced in the teaching of English as second language (ESL). All have M.A. degrees and most have lived outside the U.S.

Teaching assistants (with prior teaching experience) in the department of Linguistics are invited to participate in some programs. All are carefully supervised by senior OPIE faculty.
