Course content

Critically reflect on theories of and research into how best to learn and teach an additional language. Whether you are a qualified teacher of English to speakers of other languages or aspire to work in this field in the future, this is a great opportunity to reflect on your own experiences of learning and teaching English and approach these processes from a wide range of new perspectives.

Our course attracts students from all over the world with a huge range of backgrounds and experiences. You will contextualise your own learning and teaching within the wider discipline of applied linguistics, considering the roles of translators, speech and language therapists, literacy teachers, forensic linguists and more. This gives you the chance to increase cross-cultural understanding and knowledge of teaching and learning contexts globally. We also use online forums to provide practical opportunities for interaction with language professionals around the world.
