Each of us – lecturers and tutors on the MA in TESOL and MA in Applied Linguistics & ELT – have recommended websites and resources we like based on our research expertise and teaching interests.
Some general recommendations from all of us below:
- The TESOL Encyclopedia of English Language Teaching (online) – The Wiley Blackwell/TESOL 8-volume print, 14-volume online, encyclopedia project titled The TESOL Encyclopedia of English Language Teaching. Over 1,000 researchers, scholars and experts in the field of English Language Teaching worldwide have contributed to this 5-year project.

Occasionally we receive useful resources on Careers, usually from our Careers and Employability team, which we’ll share below.
Feel free to tell us about any resources you find and want to share. This blog is about communication and collaboration with our students and we welcome any input and suggestions from you.
