You will develop the skills needed to explain and describe language and you will consider the practicalities of teaching, so you can develop effective lesson planning and classroom management techniques.

By the end of this programme from University of Leeds you will be equipped to pursue a career in English language teaching, primary teaching, or academia.
The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages BA course provides a strong foundation from which to pursue careers in English language teaching, or a career relating to primary teaching, education and life-long language learning.
