Why choose this course?

TESOL is ideal if you have teacher qualifications and are considering a career change from within another educational context, or if you would like to better understand the language issues facing learners such as migrant, international and Indigenous students. It is also relevant to people working in overseas settings who are seeking greater knowledge and skills in English language teaching.

What to expect

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is designed to prepare you for a professional career involving knowledge and skills in English language teaching. This might be a mainstream classroom with EALD learners or an overseas context with English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

The TESOL core units deal with how second languages are learned and the most effective ways to teach them. The introductory unit Theory and Practice of Second Language Teaching and Learning will extend your knowledge and explore the pedagogical approaches and methods appropriate to different second language learning contexts.
