Summary

Kent’s MA in Applied Linguistics for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) provides teachers with advanced knowledge of linguistics related to language pedagogy, informed by research and scholarship, to enhance, develop and inform an understanding of language learning and classroom practice. The programme is offered by the Department of English Language & Linguistics, and benefits from staff expertise in areas of linguistics that inform classroom practice (such as syntax, morphology, semantics, pragmatics and phonetics), raising awareness of these fields and applying them to TESOL. Students gain an understanding of the theory, methodology and interdisciplinary nature of TESOL, as well as a firm foundation in linguistics.

Practical teaching opportunities are a feature of the programme, including teaching to peer groups and international students from other programmes. There is also the opportunity to visit a local language college and observe classes. The programme is an ideal for teachers aiming to improve their understanding and abilities in communicating across the barriers of language and those who wish to build an international dialogue.
