About Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at School of Education, University of Leeds

Designed for TESOL professionals, this programme will deepen your understanding of the foundations of TESOL while advancing your knowledge of specialist areas. If you are not yet a TESOL professional, please see our MA TESOL Studies programme.

Led by academics who are experts in this field of study, you’ll explore how languages are learnt and how the English language is most effectively taught. You’ll consider how to analyse and describe the English language and examine different approaches to teaching the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. You’ll also consider the principles behind analysing a learner’s language proficiency and tracking their development.

The MEd in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages follows the same syllabus as the MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programme, but asks you to apply a more practical, rather than theoretical, orientation to your final critical study. You will focus upon a professional issue within language education and apply ideas from your reading and a small-scale research study to find solutions to genuine English Language teaching problems.

As per the MA in TESOL, you can also choose to specialise in particular aspects of TESOL by selecting from a range of optional modules available. For example, you may choose to focus on the use of ICT in TESOL, teacher education in TESOL, or TESOL for young learners, depending on your own interests and career aspirations.

What students think about School of Education, University of Leeds

    Zara Karim - BA Childhood Studies

    Testimonial from Zara Karim - BA Childhood Studies, student at School of Education

    A particular highlight of my course was gaining knowledge on how primary schools work and about inclusion in education. This is something I often think about for when I become a teacher. Another highlight of my course has been the development of my personal profile and how I can build on this to get to where I would like to be. 

    I’m currently studying in my second year and have planned to work in industry in the summer in Thailand. I believe this opportunity will enhance my credibility for becoming a primary school teacher.

    Xiaowen Liu - MA TESOL Studies

    Testimonial from Xiaowen Liu - MA TESOL Studies, student at School of Education

    What has impressed me most is that the course combined theory with practice. For example, in the module English Teaching Methodology, in addition to introducing teaching practices in the classroom, tutors also scaffold micro-teaching, which provides students opportunities to design and deliver a real course with their partners and get feedback from tutors.

    Academic writing concerned me most before I came here, like many international students, but the School of Education prepared me well. In the first few weeks of term, we were provided with a chance to write a practice assignment to get familiar with academic writing in this country, which would not count towards our final grade but would be marked and commented on by academic staff.
