In an article posted by The Observer, the CSLC's TESOL club was spotlighted for their efforts to connect students who want to share ideas about teaching and learning in language learning.
The article, "TESOL Club Allows Students to Connect Over Passion for Teaching and Linguistics", written by Adriana Perez, shows the resilience of Notre Dame students in working together during the pandemic to "share resources, connect students with professionals, and holding 'microteaching sessions'". Senior Olivia Wright, Vice President of the TESOL club, is interviewed as well as Lisa Oglesbee, the club's faculty advisor.
Wright came to Notre Dame because of the TESOL minor, she said. Half of her classes focus on linguistics — anything and everything related to dialects, structures of language and code-switching — and the other half focuses on teaching skills such as teaching methods and classroom management.
