Join our master's course in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). You might have finished your undergraduate studies and want to boost your career. Or maybe you have non-ESOL related teaching experience and want to broaden your expertise. This is a course that can change your life and allow you to pursue new career avenues. In 18 months, you could be living abroad, teaching English. We give you the skills and experience to teach English across the world.
Our approach to teaching TESOL focuses on teaching English in a multilingual world. You will explore theoretical issues in second language learning and apply these to your teaching. We will also give you the opportunity to gain practical experience in lesson planning and delivery. Explore how to adapt materials and methods to a range of teaching situations.
You can also gain hands-on TESOL experience through our community programmes.
- On our YESOL (York: English speakers of Other Languages) programme you can hold evening classes for the local community. These aim to help our community improve their English language skills.
- YEAL (York: English as an Additional Language) is a student led voluntary outreach programme. You will be placed in a local school and work with EAL pupils to improve their English language skills
We offer you the opportunity to take a CELTA course free of charge as part of your degree. CELTA is the Certificate in English Language Teaching to Speakers of Other languages. It is an internationally-recognised teaching qualification awarded by Cambridge Assessment English. You will gain hands-on teaching experience that will prepare you for a career in teaching English. Acceptance onto this course is subject to successful interview.
