University of Leicester
Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
Students study the theory and practice of language teaching to those students with little previous experience of teaching English.
At least a 2.2 Honours degree (GPA 3.0 or above) plus evidence of commitment to teaching English as a 2nd or foreign language (eg through short-term employment as a language teacher, or higher education courses in applied linguistics or language education, preferably with associated teaching practice or internship); those who are not native speakers of English need to have a proficiency level equivalent to GCSE Grade C, IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 575 paper/IBT90 (including a minimum of 4.0 in the TWE); Cambridge Proficiency Grade C or above; a minimum of IELTS 6.0 or equivalent in each of the 4 skills is required.
Modules include: language teaching in action: principles and practice; second language teaching and learning; description of English: grammar awareness, phonology and pronunciation teaching; professional enquiry in TESOL or a dissertation.
On campus teaching is seminar-based, with tutorial support. Assessment is through written assignments and some tests, presentations and project work, depending on the module. Students are encouraged to develop their transferable skills, including IT and oral presentation.
