Speakers of Spanish can take an additional Spanish Assessment, which allows you to earn the Bilingual portion of the ESOL endorsement. The assessment is offered every two years at Lewis & Clark. For speakers of Spanish and/or other world languages, you can take and pass the NES/ORELA in your preferred language.

To add the bilingual portion of the ESOL endorsement, you have two options:

  • If you are admitted to the ESOL/Bilingual endorsement program at Lewis & Clark, once you complete all of the program requirements, including successfully passing the Spanish Assessment, Lewis & Clark will recommend you to TSPC for the endorsement.
  • If you are admitted to the ESOL endorsement program at Lewis & Clark, once you complete all of the program requirements and pass one or more of the NES/ORELA world language tests, Lewis & Clark will recommend you to TSPC for the ESOL endorsement and you will indicate to TSPC on your C-1 application form that you are also adding the Bilingual endorsement based on your passing test score(s).
