Course content

The MA offers a broad introduction to many of the key concepts and theories that lie behind language teaching and learning. You will be encouraged to think of language as more than a set of rules. Instead, you will recognise it as a complex, constantly evolving process with personal, social and educational consequences.

The practical teaching module provides you with the opportunity to practise and develop your practical teaching and reflective skills in a supportive environment and enables you to apply the knowledge gained during the course to developing your own teaching style.

Northumbria is one of the largest university-based providers of English Language teaching in the UK, with extensive experience of teaching TESOL qualifications.
