About

Teaching Languages English of London Metropolitan University 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 Teaching Languages (English) MA course will deepen your understanding of the fundamental disciplinary areas of language pedagogy, linguistics and sociolinguistics, while also focusing on more specific theoretical and practical themes. These include key areas such as language awareness and the psychology of the classroom as well as specialist areas such as language testing.

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 teachers, policy makers, educators and researchers.

In the Understanding the Language Classroom module, you’ll also have the opportunity to go on school observations to gain critical knowledge of English language teaching and the learning processes involved.

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.
