This new programme will become highly relevant in the near future because of the EU-wide demand for language teachers, (especially speakers of some non-European languages,) and awards you a qualification that satisfies international standards. You will develop an advanced conceptual understanding that will enable you to evaluate language teaching methodologies and to carry out research and enquiry in the area of language teaching and learning.
* Suitable for students who wish to obtain a general language teaching qualification for Europe and beyond. * The degree is advisable for students who wish to teach their mother tongue, or any other language they speak, on an adequate level. * The programme focuses on general, theoretical aspects of language teaching. * It will allow you to develop a global perspective.
