Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

The MA offers a broad introduction to many of the key concepts and theories that lie behind language teaching and learning. You will be encouraged to think of language as more than a set of rules. Instead, you will recognise it as a complex, constantly evolving process with personal, social and educational consequences. The practical teaching module provides you with the opportunity to practice and develop your practical teaching and reflective skills in a supportive environment and enables you to apply the knowledge gained during the course to developing your own teaching style. Northumbria is one of the largest providers of English Language teaching in the UK, with extensive experience of teaching TESOL qualifications.

Assessment methods

Your tutors will use a variety of teaching methods, which may include lectures, seminars, problem-based workshops, case discussions, practical activities, group work and tutorials. Teaching is backed up by a well-designed support system that will underpin your learning journey. You will have access to a Guidance Tutor with whom you can discuss any academic issues. Extensive feedback from both tutors and peers is built into the course.
