This programme is studied entirely in China. It is jointly delivered by the University of Leeds and Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, and allows experienced Chinese TESOL professionals to gain a deeper understanding of how languages are learned and the strategies used to teach them.
You will explore current insights, issues and problems within TESOL, and assess the theoretical frameworks for the language learning, teaching and testing processes. You will have the opportunity to appraise the procedures and outcomes of different approaches to pedagogy and evaluation in TESOL, and the ability to explore how such issues and frameworks relate to your own professional environment.
You’ll study four core modules exploring current theories of language acquisition, the complex context in which any language learning takes place, different approaches to and strategies for TESOL, and current theories around language assessment.
You’ll be taught at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies by tutors from both universities and be registered as a full-time student at Leeds, giving you access to all of our online library resources as well as those available at Guangdong University of Foreign Studies. The programme is taught from Friday evenings to Sunday afternoons, to enable serving teachers to enrol; however, it is a full-time Master’s degree and demands a considerable amount of independent study.
As a large team of education practitioners, we have a wide range of experience of teaching and teacher education work in many contexts in the UK and around the world. As researchers, we have a broad range of expertise across the discipline with ongoing research projects in teacher development, language use in migrant communities, learning with digital technologies, and IELTS preparation courses.
