老早之前在twitter上,一个用户名是Elizabeth Windsor且标注为Queen-UK的发了一条博文:For the avoidance of doubt, there is no such thing as“American English”.

  老早之前在twitter上,一个用户名是Elizabeth Windsor且标注为Queen-UK的发了一条博文:For the avoidance of doubt, there is no such thing as“American English”. There is the English language and there are mistakes.大概意思是:世界上只有两种英语,一种是英式英语,一种是错误的英语。(当然小编翻译的比较含蓄,害羞脸…)消息不胫而走,英音迷们顿时头又昂起了几分。的确,英国作为英语的发源地,对于想要学习英语、尤其是英语教育的小伙伴们,怎么能不选择英国呢?


  TESOL的全称是 “Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages” ,即为:教授母语为非英语人士英语。读起来非常绕口,但是意思却不难理解。可能大家会有一些误区,觉得TESOL就是国内的英语专业,其实不然,TESOL更偏向于教学方法论,而非单纯的Language(语言)。但是TESOL对英语的要求也是很高的,大部分学校要求雅思6.5以上。招生官们希望学生本科阶段就有非常良好的英语功底,在此基础上,再教授他们如何侧重于教学。


  说了这么多,我们以杜伦大学的TESOL专业课程设置为例。


 

  我们能清晰地看到,杜伦大学TESOL MA专业核心课程包括:基础研究方法、语言教学、语言教学方法和实践,以及基础英语教学。和所有英国大学一样,学生可以自主地选择几门和专业相关的选修课程。杜伦大学在TESOL方向也提供了众多的选择:世界英语、专业英语、英语教学材料的研发和评估、论述文本和英语教学、语言教学方法、高级研究方法、第二语言教学:老师视角、评价和评估、少儿英语教学、以及语用学和语言课堂。所以,几乎所有的课程都是和教学、方法论挂钩的,没有太多的纯英语类课程。


  由于TESOL的实践性很强,所以部分学校也会要求申请者有相关的工作经验。


  留学360小编特意整理了一些学校的录取要求,作为小伙伴申请的参考。

  1.UCL(伦敦大学学院)

  思聪的母校有两个与TESOL相关的专业,所以申请的时候一定要擦亮眼睛,避免搞混。因为两个专业的要求还是存在很大的差别。
