Overview

The Arabic Language Teaching program of London Metropolitan University offers a global approach to the field of teaching languages. With our diverse and multilingual cohort, we adopt a strong intercultural approach that provides you with a challenging and valuable learning experience. The MA in Teaching Languages (Arabic) is designed for teachers and language professionals as well as those with no teaching experience. The course ensures that you develop new ways of thinking and talking about language, language teaching, and language learning across different social and educational contexts.

The unique structure of the course will help develop your professional and academic interests through wide reading, guided discussion and supported research, encouraging you to develop the abilities necessary to become highly skilled and globally employable Arabic language teachers, policy makers, educators and researchers.

The lecturers teaching on the course have long-term experiences in teaching in different contexts, are research active and have publications in the subject area.

With its international orientation, the degree explores cultural, educational, political, linguistic and other contexts in which the Arabic language is learned, taught and used worldwide. It will enable you to become both more reflexive and reflective in your practice and encourages you to think of yourself as an Arabic language professional with a strong contribution to make in the field.

After the course

The MA offers opportunities for career advancement both in the UK and abroad. Most graduates find employment after completion of the MA, some returning to more senior positions in their previous employment, while others move into new areas such as school management or language advisory work. Some of our students continue with us to study at doctoral level.
