Overview

English Language with Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a stimulating, thought-provoking course designed to make you think about how language functions in the world today.

English Language with TESOL at DMU allows you to combine the study of English Language with the key theoretical and practical issues involved in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

The course is designed to enable you to develop your own ability to teach English to non-native speakers whilst enabling you to think about how language in general and English in particular functions in the world today.

You will develop a set of linguistic and analytical skills, which will help you become a highly-skilled communicator. In the final year you will have the opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge into practice with our work placement module.
