Compulsory modules

Critical Study allows you to design and undertake a small-scale research project related to your own interests in the field of education.

Learning and Teaching in TESOL examines the approaches and principles that TESOL teachers can use to teach the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Investigating Language for TESOL provides you with the skills to describe language in terms of sounds, words, grammar and discourse, and considers how you can analyse learners' language to understand their language development.

Teaching Academic English will help you understand what distinguishes academic discourse from other kinds and so understand the kinds of 'literacies' - skills, knowledge and technical abilities - that tertiary level students need to have, and understand how English for Academic Purposes teaching can help learners acquire those skills.

Corpus Linguistics in the Classroom explores the use of corpora in the teaching of English for Academic Purposes. It will show you what kinds of corpora are available and how to use them to identify what language specific groups of learners need to learn.
