美英澳加:TESOL专业全解析

时间:2013-04-19 03:50

分类:综合类文章

  英语的魅力有人能够阻挡么?英语的覆盖力与辐射力有人能够规避么?当今世界上,谁能够一生完全不接触英语呢?弄堂里的老阿姨也会哼唱“happy birthday”;丫丫学语的早教班小朋友也念着“A,B,C,D……”;外企中的小白领踌躇在邮件中该用“with”,还是“by”……英语,已经在大家的生活中占据了越来越重要的地位,影响着我们的生活。“问渠那得清如许,为有源头活水来”,我们从哪里获得一口纯正流利正宗地道的英文呢?当然,是我们的老师。在目前越来越专业化的今天,一位成功的英语老师也面临很多挑战,首先她需要有非常扎实的专业背景,其次她需要熟知英语国家的风土人情,再次她需要有教书育人的热诚热情……

  如果你也有这种对语言的迷恋,对教育的热望,对桃李满天下的期待,欢迎你,亲爱的同学们,欢迎你从TESOL专业的学习开始你一名英语老师的征程……

  也许你对TESOL专业并不了解,也许你还不确定自己能否有机会留学异国,以下这篇文章,我将从专业特点,就业前景,录取标准,主流英语系国家大学推荐,来给大家呈现一片属于语言和教育的交叉空间。

  专业特点:

  什么是TESOL?TESOL是“Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages” 的缩写,中文翻译是“对外英语教学”。这个专业是英语语言学与教育学/教学法的结合,在国外大学里大多将这个专业设置在语言学院或者教育学院。主要是针对母语是非英语国家的人的英语教育。由于TESOL的教学对象是“对外”,所以其教学方法不仅在于对英语本身的教育,特别考虑到学习者的母语和文化背景。

  在此要强调,大家在了解这个专业的时候可能也看到了TEFL专业,那在此我也介绍一下,TEFL是指Teaching English as a Foreign Language(作为外语的英语教学),目前基本上tesol、tefl和tesl证书都已经被混用了,三者没有被严格的区别,都被作为外教资格证来看待。所以大家在选择专业时,也不用太强调这其中的区别了。

  那TESOL专业到底要学些什么呢?我用各国大学的专业课程设置来为大家做个简单的对比。

  就业形势:

  由于TESOL专业有非常强的专业性,所以就业时也相对比较有目的性。在国外的话,由于各国都有专门强化国际学生英语的ESL/EFL课程,或单独的语言学校,亦或是大学的语言中心,那TESOL专业的毕业生都可以选择这些机构任教。如果回到中国,那当然是一片更广阔的天地,学生可以选择去各大中小学做英语老师,或者去专门的语言培训学校任教。也有些人进入出版社,成为TESOL教材的编辑等。部分学生选择继续进修博士学位,当然这部分人时少数的。

  录取标准:

  那同学们需要具备什么条件才能有机会出国进修这个专业呢?通常TESOL项目的录取要求侧重在英语水平上,往往对雅思或者托福有比较高的要求。

  美国TOP100的大学都要求托福100分以上,雅思7分,不要求GRE成绩;个别托福要求低一点,80分的,则一般需要提供GRE成绩。个别学校GMAT成绩也可以接受。其他大部分学校要求托福80-100之间,若雅思则为6.5或7.0分。学生GPA一般需要3.0以上。美国的TESOL专业欢迎各种学术背景的同学申请,一般也不需要提供教学经验。学生条件优秀者也比较容易申请到奖学金。

  澳大利亚大学的TESOL专业一般对大学平均分会有弱化,基本上211大学70-75分,非211大学80分以上,就可以申请到八大名校(G8)了。至于雅思分数,一般要求都是6.5(6),莫纳什大学和西澳大学要求7.0分。澳洲大学的TESOL专业一般要求最好有工作经验,或者提供教师资格证也可以。

  英国的TESOL专业一般对语言类大学更具倾向性,当然师范类大学的学生也很受欢迎。一般要求大学平均分80分左右,雅思要求为6.5(6),个别学校要求7分。很多专业要求有相关的教学工作经验,当然教师资格证也可以起到一定的辅助作用。

  加拿大大学的TESOL专业在大学的课程中开设较少,但对于申请学生的条件要求相对严格,必须为相关专业背景,并且建议有一定的工作经验,语言要求非常高,最低的要求为托福92分,最高的要求雅思8分。
