Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Program Description: We are pleased to announce that places are still available for 2010 enrollment in our part-time, two-year Distance MA TESOL. This programme is a web-based version of our very successful campus-based MA TESOL.

Because the programme is entirely web-based, students stay in their workplace while pursuing their studies. This offers them the opportunity for flexible part-time learning and for basing their coursework and dissertation on issues and problems in their own educational context.

Lancaster has a world-wide reputation for excellence in research and publications concerning many aspects of language teaching and learning. The programme tutors are Martin Bygate, Judit Kormos , Andrea Révész, Gila Schauer and Alan Waters.
The programme provides a thorough introduction to academic research and thinking of relevance to TESOL practice. There are five taught modules, covering fundamental areas of TESOL, and a dissertation - for further information, please visit:


The programme begins in late September, with an on-line orientation session. This familiarises you with the requirements of the programme and web-based learning, and also introduces you to your tutors and fellow students.
