About

The Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme offered by The University of Hong Kong equips students with a thorough grounding in current research, teaching theory, principles and practices in English language education, applicable in schools, universities and other educational institutions in Asia and elsewhere.

Overview

The programme in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages is jointly offered at The University of Hong Kong by the Faculty of Education and the Centre for Applied English Studies in the Faculty of Arts and is designed for university graduates/graduating students.
