Course overview

English is now commonly regarded by many as a global lingua franca, used by people throughout the world as a first, second or third language. English is increasingly taught as a second language, and a proficiency in English is required in many professions throughout the world which means there is a great demand both in England and abroad for English Language teachers. This degree has been developed to help meet that demand by delivering a course with a strong vocational focus.

Crucially, this degree includes the entire syllabus for the Cambridge CELTA. This includes both methodology and teaching practice modules. In practice modules you will take part in supervised lesson planning, observation and assessed teaching practice with feedback from experienced CELTA tutors. It is important to note that the Cambridge CELTA component has to be completed in one year. English Language introduces you to the nature of language and communication before progressing on to more complex areas. You will explore some of the main applications in linguistics as well as focusing on areas such as semantics, phonetics and phonology, and the analysis of text and communication.

All assessments will be in accordance with the learning outcomes and the range will provide both formative (eg non-assessed discussions and presentations, language laboratory work, class exercises etc) and summative (eg unseen examinations, in-class assessments, essays, portfolios, assessed seminar presentation etc) functions.

In the majority of modules, a combination of assessment types is used to ensure that you are able to demonstrate your theoretical knowledge of and engagement with a topic, but usually also include a more practical element. For example, the assessment for a module may consist of a traditional essay in which you will discuss a particular theoretical approach, but also a data analysis exercise which allows you to demonstrate that you are able to apply your knowledge in the 'real world', and to link theory with practice. For those doing the CELTA component, the teaching practice assessment is based on classroom-related written assignments and continuous assessment of lesson plans and your own teaching.

Dedication: full-time.
