Course Description

The programme emphasises a theoretical understanding of what language is, and how that might improve language teaching. The assumption is that you have basic training in teaching and are seeking more specialised knowledge of linguistics and language acquisition. Coursework includes modules in linguistics (e.g. syntax, phonology, pragmatics) as well as language teaching (e.g. methodology, applying methodology). You are encouraged to challenge the ways in which you have been taught to teach such that a more principled understanding of language is reflected in your teaching practice. Browse our website (www.leeds.ac.uklinguistics) for more information.
