The Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages has two main aims: (i) to explore the structure, grammar and phonology of the English language and (ii) to help prospective teachers increase their knowledge and understanding of teaching techniques and methodologies and develop their teaching skills.

The non-credit program examines English language teaching in relation to methods, assessment and evaluation, and materials development by:

  • Developing knowledge of the structure and grammar of English for use in the language teaching setting.
  • Increasing understanding of effective English language teaching methodologies.
  • Examining principles, issues and trends in English language learning and teaching in a range of learning contexts.
