There is an increasing demand for teachers of English worldwide, and the sector is no longer dominated by native English speaking teachers. The Applied Linguistics for English Language Teaching programme is aimed at students with little or no teaching experience, who want to improve their understanding of linguistics as applied to English Language teaching.
If you want to teach in higher education or private schools we can help you to gain a professional qualification (at your expense), such as a Certificate in English Language to Adults (CELTA) in addition to your masters award.
In this MA
- You will be encouraged to reflect on language learning strategies, in a real context, by becoming a learner yourself: as part of the programme, you are required to learn a foreign language for one semester.
- You will be provided with opportunities to observe experienced English language teachers teaching in real classroom situations, and to reflect on best practice.
- You will receive a thorough grounding in the theoretical aspects of language teaching and learning.
- You will have opportunities to apply these theories by micro-teaching in a peer based environment.
