Trinity College Dublin: English Language Teaching
|Institution||Trinity College Dublin|
|Department||School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences|
The M.Phil. in English Language Teaching is aimed at both new and experienced teachers of English as a foreign or second language. The course will give practising teachers the opportunity to explore current issues in ELT, and to deepen their understanding of the theoretical and practical concerns that underlie their teaching in TESOL and other settings.
For students who are new to teaching, the elective modules in English Language Teaching Practice can provide exposure to lesson planning and teaching approaches through the use of classroom observation, controlled micro-teaching practice, and other means.
Preference is given to applicants with relevant teaching experience. However, applicants without English language teaching experience will be encouraged to take the English Language Teaching Practice elective modules. All applicants are expected to show proficiency in at least one language other than their first language.
The M.Phil. in English Language Teaching programme benefits in particular from CLCS’s involvement in the development and implementation of two Council of Europe tools that are important in the current debate about language learning, teaching and assessment world-wide: the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the European Language Portfolio. These tool are relevant in English language teaching environments including TESOL environments.
