About

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages program at American University of Sharjah (AUS) is the premier preparation for a career in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

Overview

With the vast resources and faculty of the Department of English, we provide a program especially designed to meet the needs of teachers of English as a second language in a diverse, multicultural setting. Our course offerings provide professional training and solid foundations in second language acquisition, teaching methodology, language testing and use of technology in language teaching classrooms. Our outstanding academic program is taught by highly qualified faculty with international teaching experience in the fields of TESOL, theoretical and applied linguistics, and intercultural communication.

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive program of study and practical opportunities at an advanced level to both experienced and novice English language teachers in the UAE and elsewhere. Highly qualified, multiculturally experienced faculty, research-based methodology, practical teaching experience and computer-assisted learning provide a solid foundation for this program.

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages program at American University of Sharjah (AUS) mission is to provide English language graduates and teachers with advanced practical, theoretical and critical knowledge of language learning models and teaching methodologies for English instruction at different levels, primarily throughout the schools of the Gulf region. The core of our program leads to a comprehensive understanding of the forms and functions of English and relates pedagogical theories to English language teaching. This goal is reinforced by supervised teaching practice in real-world classrooms.

Our program prepares its graduates to evaluate the effectiveness and validity of different teaching methodologies and testing procedures, develop or adapt materials for special teaching/learning situations, supervise classroom teachers and assist in the administration of ESL programs.

We invite you to join us for an intellectually challenging and stimulating time inspired by our supportive, innovative faculty members and our comprehensive and dynamic curriculum.
