Teaching English as a Foreign Language (Including Placement Year)

Our mission is to discover how language is organised, how it is acquired and how it is used for communication. You obtain techniques and materials to teach English to non-native speakers. You consider how English sentences are structured, how English words are formed and how many sounds English has. You explore whether native and foreign leaners learn the language in the same way and understand the role of the English teacher in the classroom. The four-year version of our degree allows you to spend your third year employed on a placement while otherwise remaining identical to the three-year course.
