De Montfort University
English Language Teaching
The course explores contemporary research issues and a variety of teaching methodologies in ELT, giving you the opportunity to broaden your understanding of the theoretical and practical issues that ELT teachers and learners face in the classroom. While focusing on research trends and issues, this course is essentially practical, giving you the opportunity to engage with teaching practice sessions if selected.
Students should have the equivalent of a UK Bachelors degree (2.1 minimum) in a relevant subject such as English or education; the university welcomes applications from a wide sector and all non standard applications will be carefully considered.
The modules include: classroom trends and issues in ELT methodology; teaching of receptive and productive skills; teaching phonetics and phonology; English for specific purposes and course design; teaching English using new technologies; socio and psycho linguistics.
Taught modules will require preparatory reading and weekly attendance over 2 terms. Formal classroom contact will normally be one 2hour session per week, per module, and will take the form of a workshop and may require attendance at the university for up to 3 days a week. Teaching will be supported by individual or small group tutorials. As well as essays, you will be required to submit work in the form of lesson plans and rationales, microteaching to peers, presentations as well as leading seminar discussions.
