Teaching English as a foreign language (TEFL) involves teaching English to individuals, usually in their own countries. The demand for EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teachers is enormous nationally and internationally and the job market is quite competitive. A good teacher has the knowledge, expertise and practical know-how to teach students with diverse needs and interests in EFL.

METU Northern Cyprus Campus TEFL Program

The B.A. Program in Teaching English as a Foreign Language provides students with the opportunity to expand and refine their knowledge of English and equips them with the means and resources to assist their own students in learning English. TEFL students learn the best practices in the planning, teaching and evaluating of second language instruction and are given the opportunity to observe how these practices are implemented in local schools. To address some of the needs of globalization, students are also provided with a wide selection of courses mainly focusing on literature and humanities. Most of these courses are also open to interested students in other programs at the METU Northern Cyprus campus, giving them the opportunity to study the humanities and reach across disciplinary boundaries in developing skills of critical and intellectual engagement. Students also take courses in a second foreign language, which they learn to actively use in communication and to obtain or reinforce knowledge of other subject areas.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of this program will be certified English teachers and will be qualified to work as English teachers, curriculum designers and material developers at public and private schools and state and foundation universities as well as in other areas and contexts requiring advanced English language skills.
