In today's globalised world, the cultural and linguistic composition of communities is more diverse than ever before. The ability to express ourselves, to communicate with others and to decipher the multitude of messages we receive every day from both within our own culture and across others is fundamental to our existence in today's modern society. In our ever-shrinking and interconnected world, the ability to teach English to speakers of other languages is a highly desirable skill. And, the ability to teach with both cultural and linguistic sensitivity is even more valuable. With its dual focus, this course will provide you with an understanding of the complex relationship between language use and context, as well as a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the field of teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL).
