We offer a range of professional English language teaching modules as part of our
MA Teaching English
as a Foreign Language/Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TEFL/TESOL)
in the Department of Language and Linguistics.
We run a range of modules for new and early-career teachers to develop personally and professionally, by relating the theory of
teaching English as a foreign language to its practical application within the English language teaching context.
We offer advanced teaching modules for experienced teachers to upgrade practical skills, linking them to the latest developments in teaching English to speakers of
other languages. Our modules have a strong emphasis on the development and production of high quality teaching materials to suit the contexts in which teachers work.
This lecture examines an important concept related to materials development for English language teaching - 'authenticity'.
