The Teaching of English as a Foreign/ International Language program from Hellenic Open University is addressed at anyone interested in pursuing postgraduate studies in the domain of teaching English as a foreign language and, in addition, integrates the emerging dimension of English as an international language of communication.
In particular, the M.Ed. in TEFIL integrates all aspects of English language teaching, from the teaching of the “four skills” (i.e., the production and perception of spoken and written language), the design, development and evaluation of curricula and courseware, the testing and assessment of the language skills, the integration of educational technology, the integration of intercultural approaches to teaching, the teaching English to children and adults, teacher education and training, to addressing learning difficulties.
The distance learning methodology adopted in the M.Ed. in TEFIL, in conjunction with the support provided by the tutors, who act as mentors, enables teachers to attend the M.Ed. without leaving their classes and learners. This is achieved through innovative distance learning activities that prompt teachers to apply what they study in actual practice, by designing, teaching and evaluating original lessons, thereby experimenting with and deeply understanding education in all its complexity.
