Summary

Our MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is designed for graduates in an English language-related subject who wish to become teachers of English as a second language. The programme provides you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and accurate use of the English language, with particular focus on grammar, lexis, discourse, genre and phonology.

The course also raises your awareness of the varied roles English has across the globe and the current debates around varied ELT approaches, methodologies and assessment strategies when applied to a range of ELT contexts, whilst also developing your academic and teaching skills.

The final dissertation project allows you to specialise in an area of TESOL of particular interest and importance to you as well as further developing your research and analytical skills. Teaching is delivered predominantly via seminars which include a mix of tutor-led input and student-to-student activities, which not only focus on presentation and discussion of theories and models but also actually expose you to a range of ELT teaching approaches and methodologies first hand. You will then be encouraged to reflect on and use these yourself, perhaps when you are an ELT professional in the UK or overseas.
