Course Overview

Our English Language and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) degree scheme looks at ways of analysing language knowledge, language use across contexts and time and relates this to teaching English to speakers of other languages.

Opportunities offered to students include the chance to obtain an internationally recognised, professional teaching qualification (Cambridge CELTA) during year 2, subject to interview.

This degree scheme also allows the opportunity to spend a semester abroad internationally. It is also possible to spend a year abroad after year 2 - see our 4 year option.

Together with English Literature, we are ranked 7th in the UK within the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014), gaining a score of 100% for the social impact of its research activities.

Teaching and Assessment

In order to structure an academically coherent and intellectually rigorous programme, the degree is built around compulsory and optional modules. (Have a look at our module booklet for full information on modules).

The programme is delivered through lectures, tutorials and seminars. You will usually receive nine hours minimum scheduled contact time with your teachers every week. Every degree involves choices, options will be available and if first choices are not secured then the alternative will be as good. Full attendance at lectures, seminars and personal tutorials (personal tutorials are obligatory). All Arts and Humanities programmes include independent learning which requires initiative and hard work. 

We will challenge you with demanding teaching and assessment. Assessment includes essay, coursework and examination, presentations and a dissertation.    

Key Features

Year 1:

  • A comprehensive grounding in the principles and terminology used in the study and analysis of language, as well as an introduction to different teaching methods.

Year 2:

  • Students have the option of taking the internationally recognised Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA), a professional qualification for teachers of English as a foreign language. Places are limited, subject to academic progression and students will have to undertake an interview process similar to PGCE interview.  The typical cost is £1430 but TESOL students only pay the exam fee, currently £140. 
  • Students have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester. Opportunities change annual, but in the past, partner countries have included: China, Hong Kong, and the USA.
  • During Year 2 you can also change to the four year degree and study abroad between your second and final (3rd) years.

Year 3:

  • Students can undertake a research project in an area of specialism supported by current academic staff. Previous students have worked on topics including language learning aptitude, vocabulary studies, online grooming communication, evaluation of teaching materials, and many others. Students showcase their work at our annual BA conference and some students have published their work in international journals and presented at international conferences.
  • Students also have the opportunity to develop their programming skills through the development of computer-assisted language learning materials.
  • Students receive thorough training in research methods including reporting and analysis of data

Description

Our English Language and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) degree scheme looks at ways of analysing language knowledge, language use across contexts and time and relates this to teaching English to speakers of other languages.

 In the English Language component, we look at:

  • how language is used in everyday communication including in different contexts; 
  • how language has developed over time; 
  • how we learn our first language and subsequent languages; 
  • how language operates in bilingual contexts; 
  • how we produce and understand language in real time, as well as 
  • how the underlying language system works for sounds and grammar. 

In the TESOL component, we look at the challenge of learning and teaching of English as a new language, including:

  • how different methods are used to teach language;
  • how children learn an additional language;
  • how theories of second language acquisition relate to teaching;
  • how current research into English Language Teaching informs practice.

Entry Requirements

Our standard entry requirement is BBB or equivalent but a typical offer could be BBB-ABB (UCAS tariff points 120-168), as all offers are made following a review of the application form, predicted/achieved grades and subjects, the reference and personal statement.  We also accept a range of advanced level qualifications including BTEC Diploma DMM-DDM; International Baccalaureate 32-33; Welsh Baccalaureate - grade equivalent to A-level; Access to Higher Education and Open University qualifications, and Extended Project.

Student Quote

I thoroughly enjoyed the wide variety of modules on offer. The most important thing was the level of support from my lecturers. They all worked exceptionally hard, not just on a professional level, but also on a personal level to make sure I was comfortable, understood everything and worked to the best of my potential. I have reprised my role as an English teacher in China and also opened my own English school using the advice and training I received on my course. In my contracted employment I teach middle school and kindergarten, two jobs which before my degree I did not have the confidence to teach. However, armed with the knowledge I acquired, teaching is much easier and meaningful for both myself and my students.Graham O'Donoghue

After graduating from Swansea university with a degree in English Language and TEFL (now TESOL), I went on to do a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism. I learned many core skills while studying in Swansea and had some amazing experiences, like travelling to China to teach English for three months. My time at Swansea made me want to continue studying and develop a career in something I absolutely love. I am now a Broadcast Journalist working at The Wave and Swansea Sound. I read the hourly news on air and report on local Welsh stories. I have met and interviewed some amazingly inspirational people! I now have a career I love from an undergraduate foundation stemmed from a lovely three years at Swansea University. Kathy Peart

I learned how to appreciate that every phenomenon in language can be questioned and explored, when I'd often assumed before that things just "are". I am able to aid language learners more effectively. I now work as a Curriculum Developer for a company that prepares Chinese students to study abroad, designing teaching and testing materials and tools that balance [my degree's] teaching with the practical realities of the various tests used by their target institutions. Daniel Ford

Research

The Department of Applied Linguistics has a strong research profile in a number of specialist areas. These include vocabulary studies, second language acquisition, discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, pragmatics and language teaching pedagogy. These are reflected in many of the modules offered in this degree scheme

We have recently invested in an Applied Linguistics research lab, including an eye-tracker and reaction time software. Students will have the opportunity to use these facilities during their dissertations, depending on topic chosen.

The Research Institute for Arts and Humanities (RIAH) and Language Research Centre bring together academics, postgraduates and visiting national and international scholars to create a rich and vibrant research environment geared to international excellence and impact.
