More particularly, the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) course from University of Liverpool aims:
To make you aware of theoretical issues in language teaching, second language acquisition and learning
To develop your understanding of current, practical classroom methodology
To introduce you to the latest approaches to language analysis
To help you understand the connections between theory and practice.
Our academic staff have extensive experience of teaching internationally and working on projects and have active research interests and publications. Student feedback consistently indicates how much they appreciate our tutors’ friendly and patient support as well as their excellent academic and professional abilities.
The independence of study, clarity of expression and management of time demanded by all our taught programmes equip the successful graduate with the skills and knowledge base required for further academic study and research in English and other areas.
However, many graduates choose to enter careers such as teaching, publishing and journalism, or to work in the business sector, often in human resources, administration, marketing or sales.
Successful alumni have gone on to teach English at elementary, secondary and tertiary levels in schools around the globe. A significant number of MA graduates have also continued their studies to PhD level.
