Course content

MA Advanced ESOL

Studying for the MA Advanced ESOL will raise a non-native English speaker’s language skills to those of a near-native English speaker, and provide the students with an enhanced cultural, socio-political and economic awareness of the English speaking world in general and the UK in particular.

You will also further develop your intercultural communication skills in preparation for an international working environment.

The programme has been created specifically for English language graduates. Developing on programme participants’ existing English language skills - typically gained through an undergraduate degree in English or English Literature – the MA Advanced ESOL will improve the students’ linguistic analysis and research skills, take their spoken and written English language skills to a new level and expose them to an international world at Glyndŵr University.
