What happens on the course?

This course is structured to encourage inclusiveness and communication, an aspect which manifests in much of the methodology employed for teaching. Interactive workshops and lectures integrate pair and group work frequently, data collection and analysis activities focusing on linguistic systems, perspectives of systematic language studies, teaching approaches and cultural diversity. The shared progressive attitude formed through this collaborative approach has led to the excellent reputation of English Language and TESOL graduates, regarded as confident, committed professionals with a keen resourcefulness in practical and theoretical matters.

Your independence will be demonstrated in sustained study and incentivised research time, preparing teaching practice and assignments while reading widely for additional subject knowledge. The tutelage of staff at the School of Humanities will prepare you for your own teaching practice, working with fellow student and ESOL learners in the community. Work placements factor heavily into the curriculum, offering chances for experience within teaching posts including those available overseas, developing your maturity and enterprising aptitude. These experiences will dramatically strengthen prospects for employment in University graduates, a fact further enforced by the development of transferrable skills such as reflection and digital literacy throughout the programme.
