Accordingly, knowing English has become one of the key factors in any country’s success at international, and even at national level. Thus, it is of vital importance to have highly qualified specialists of English who perform either as English language translators-interpreters or are involved in teaching English efficiently. English Language Teaching program offered at master’s level by International Black Sea University aims at educating and training English language teachers whose qualification and expertise meet modern demands of the time.

The program is designed in a way that pays a great attention to general pedagogical, psychological and methods-of-teaching knowledge and skills. The language of instruction is English so that students master not only the practical English language but also field-specific terminology so that they become efficient users of English.

The program requires deep analysis of theoretical knowledge so that it is realized in practice, independent work and working with scholarly literature. Thus, upon successful completion of the course, students will be efficient users of English language, skillful teachers, or they will have enough knowledge and expertise to pursue their doctoral studies in English language teaching....
