Our Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) course at University of Westminster combines theoretical academic study with practical application and skills development in English language teaching. Our course provides advanced training for TESOL professionals, and examines the latest developments in TESOL methodology and related issues. You'll develop the practical and professional skills involved in TESOL, along with the ability to analyse and apply theoretical perspectives to practical situations.
The MA enables you to develop your skills in argument, synthesis and critical expression of TESOL issues, and apply them in different teaching contexts. You'll also enhance your advanced skills of research, presentation and analysis in TESOL contexts. Nurturing your professional development and skills in pursuing further independent research is a key part of the course, preparing you to make a full contribution in your specialist area.
The course consists of three core modules and a range of option modules. The Language and Learning: Description and Analysis core module introduces in-depth exploration of the core concepts in the description and analysis of language and language learning, with specific reference to English language teaching and second language acquisition. The Language Teaching Methods core module examines a wide range of current practice and developments, including communicative competence in language learning and teaching, language teaching methodology, and discrete and integrated skills. The Dissertation is the third core module.
