Q&A with Mian, MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

PG Mian's photo

Why did you choose to study MA TESOL?
I have always been fascinated by linguistics.

Why did you choose to study at King’s?
King’s reputation as a global top-20 university attracted me. And its location in London, which means loads of job opportunities and activities that students can take part in: movie festivals, fashion week, cultural festivals.

Where are the students in your class from?
They are from China, Japan, Thailand, Cyprus, Saudi Arabia, UK…

How are the tutors of your course? 
Nick is the programme director and he is so nice; he is always willing to offer academic advice, life advice or books to students 🙂

Mian Hu is from China and studies an MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at King’s College London. The photo was taken when I was doing my teaching practice at IH (International House, London), which is a language school for overseas students. We study the theoretic teaching principles at King’s, and then practice these principles and approaches at IH. This MA model aims to fill in the gap between SLA (second language acquisition) theory and practice, which is challenging and provides a sense of fulfilment.
