About Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [MATESOL] at The Education University of Hong Kong

The MATESOL programme provides a practical, professionally-focused Master's degree for graduates who are in need of an advanced academic qualification in TESOL. It is designed for English language teachers, teacher educators and language professionals working in areas of language teaching, language-in-education policy, curriculum design and planning, materials development and assessment in Hong Kong, mainland China or overseas.

The programme includes core courses in ELT methodology and Second language research. A range of electives broaden students' knowledge of English language pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar, curriculum and assessment, literature and language arts in language teaching, impact of the global spread of English on local speech communities, and social and psychological aspects of language learning.

Students may complete the programme by coursework or choose a specialised degree strand to complete the programme by coursework plus dissertation. The MATESOL does not include a practical teaching component and is recommended to be taken in conjunction with a PGDE or equivalent teaching qualification if the applicants wish to obtain teacher qualification in Hong Kong.

The MATESOL programme is recognised by The Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) as English language major degree programme; it is also included in the list of "Programmes Accepted for Grants under the Professional Development Incentive Grant Scheme for Language Teachers". MATESOL graduates will be eligible to apply for full exemption from the Language Proficiency Assessment for Teachers of English (LPATE), if they have already obtained 'relevant teacher training'.
