In Response To: Masters in TEFL (Erin L Colton-Enberg)

I hope by "Europe" you mean "The UK and / or Ireland" because other than those countries, you will be outside of the "Inner Circle" English speaking nations. Basically, many countries will not consider them to be equivalent to a masters from an "Inner Circle" English speaking nation.

People are obviously going to be biased towards wherever they happen to have done their graduate degree in language teaching (which may be a masters of TESOL or Applied Linguistics or Education or, occasionally, English).

If you are PRIMARILY interested in sociolinguistics (this really means "almost exclusively"): look into universities in Australia and New Zealand (as with anything there are exceptions- look up research interests of the professors).

If you are PRIMARILY interested in psycholinguistics (again, "almost exclusively"): look into universities in North America (as with anything there are exceptions- look up research interests of the professors).

If you are interested in both approximately equally then probably a university in the UK would be a good fit.

Look up different universities (and what psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics actually means if you don't yet know) and find one that is a good fit for you.
