The MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with Applied Linguistics programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) ) will equip you with a thorough grounding in teaching methodology, classroom management, an in-depth knowledge of lexis, grammar and phonology, and the way in which language is learned. It will also help you to develop the analytical and reflective skills you need to continue to develop as a professional.
English is the world’s foremost language, and literally millions are learning it. Teaching English is a truly rewarding and fulfilling career, and one which will enable you to travel widely and come into contact with other cultures. There is an increasing demand for well-qualified TESOL professionals around the world.
TESOL with Applied Linguistics combines a focus on principles and theories with a concern to help you develop practical skills, and is taught by people who are both academic researchers, practitioners and teacher-trainers in their own right. It covers methodology, second language learning and acquisition, and language analysis.
We currently have graduates working in ELT positions in a variety of countries, including the UK, Japan, Malaysia, China, Thailand and Saudi Arabia. We have a well-established network of alumni and are able to put students in contact with graduates around the world. Regular work opportunities arise within UCLan’s Language Academy or at partner institutions.
There are also opportunities, dependent upon you holding suitable qualifications and experience, to work on the marking or moderation of exam papers for the international English examinations that we produce and quality assure for other organisations.
