In Response To: Re: Sunderland MA TESOL (Theresa)

I donlt know the course.
But one of the main grumbles about MA TESOLs, and potential bars to some employment to holders of MA TESOLs, is that they often don't contain a practical component and there's no indication that having the MA means you are remotely competent at applying the theory in the classroom.

The CELTA may have been same time ago and the MA will give you a wider range of teaching skills and approaches to try out; how can it hurt to have such practice assessed?
