Applied Linguistics and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

This course aims to provide further theoretical understanding of language learning and give students the chance to develop their teaching skills. Students gain a firm grounding in the current theories and methodologies of foreign language teaching and learning, and 2nd language acquisition, and have the chance to apply these to their own classroom practice. Students learn the basics of conducting research, and improve the critical and analytical skills in demand from employers. Modules also allow them to investigate other issues of language, like migration or identity.

Entry requirements

Applicants require a good Honours degree or equivalent in a related subject (languages, linguistics, education, psychology, sociology or other related area); teaching experience in linguistics/TESOL is also taken into account; language teaching experience is recommended but not essential; candidates for whom English is not a 1st language will be expected to demonstrate a certified level of proficiency of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.

Course modules

Core modules: Second language acquisition; discourse in society; research methods in applied linguistics; major project. Optional modules: Materials and course design; classroom theory and practice; impacts of migration; language, identity and policy.

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on coursework, portfolios, classroom observation tasks and a 15,000-word dissertation.
