Cert (PG) English Language Teaching

Course Description

This course focuses on the theoretical and practical issues that impact on the teaching of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and English as a Second Language (TESL/TESOL). The MA is designed to develop knowledge and critical understanding of current theories and research in language acquisition, and relate these to the practice of English language pedagogy.

The course is aimed both at experienced language-teaching professionals and those with language- and linguistics-based degrees but little or no teaching experience. Options, seminar groups and teaching practice are organised to reflect your previous experience and interests.

Course structure

We continue to develop and update our modules for 2016 entry to ensure you have the best student experience.

This course comprises two modules from the MA: Principles and Practice in ELT and Practical Teaching Techniques and Observation.
