English is widely used for cross cultural communication both in writing and in speech. Thus the language, as a dynamic entity, acquires new words and linguistic structures in its day to day use amongst communities of different cultural origins and backgrounds. Further, as the language of the business world, English keeps on changing rapidly to keep up with technology and new, improved channels of communication. In such a context, the ability to effectively communicate in English while adapting to norms of the business world has come to be of utmost importance. Moreover, teachers of English are now required to produce students who are not only sound in syntax and lexis of English, but who are also aware of the evolving nature of the language and have an appreciation for an entire culture behind the language.

The programme Advanced Diploma in TESOL will improve not only the English skills of the students, but also will give them a sound knowledge regarding Teaching Methodology, while preparing them to be better professionals in the field of Education. Moreover, the course will develop students’ analytical skills by motivating students to contemplate on, analyze and find answers to issues related to English language.
