TESOL: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
TESOL refers to Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, a term that has replaced TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). The course is particularly beneficial if students are planning to go on to do a PGCE or pursue a teaching-related career. With the approval of their home College, students at the University of Exeter can take a series of optional modules in TESOL at INTO University of Exeter (15 credit module in year 1 and 30 credit modules in year 2 & final year). Whilst most students choose to do TESOL over the three years, it is possible to do any module as a stand-alone option at the appropriate level. It is not essential to have studied TESOL at Level 1 if you would like to study it at Level 2.
Teaching and assessment
TESOL is a taught module which requires 100% attendance and full participation in group situations. There is some commitment outside the timetabled input sessions for classroom observations, teaching practice and contact with international students. A wide variety of assessment types are used in order to help students develop transferable skills and enhance their employability. There are no final exams and all course work is submitted before the beginning of the third term.
