You also practice teaching English to speakers of other languages. You are exposed to various forms of the English language, specifically focusing on the learning and teaching of language skills and systems. On graduating, you may also, under certain conditions, study towards the internationally-recognised Cambridge CELTA teaching qualification. **Course overview**: There are two language modules where you learn about language skills as well as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and functions. The TESOL module concentrates on how speakers of other languages learn and how they should be taught English.

You can choose your research project for your dissertation, either a more specialist English language theme, such as language and culture, English language for science and technology, business language, or language and resources for younger learners. **After the course**: This programme is aimed at anyone who has a strong interest in the English language and in teaching it to speakers of other languages. There are varied work opportunities for graduates, including continuation on the Cambridge CELTA or MA in TESOL, or working abroad in a range of TESOL contexts.
