Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at University of York - UCAS

University of York

Degree level: Postgraduate

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (Taught)

Course summary

This is an academic programme of study and not a teacher training course. Therefore, it provides a foundation in applied linguistics, approaches to English teaching and research methods on which later training in practical teaching can build. Theories of language acquisition and language teaching are explored, with the emphasis on how such theories may be practically applied; however, there is no teaching practicum as part of this programme. The programme is designed primarily for people with little or no prior experience of English language teaching, but who have a relevant 1st degree (English language/linguistics or education with a substantial English component) and who intend to be an English teacher or researcher. If you anticipate that you will have 1 year's teaching experience or more by the time you start the programme, we encourage you to apply to our Master's in applied linguistics for English language teaching.
