PGDip Applied Linguistics

I chose to enrol in the PGDip SLT program because I thought this program suit my career demands as a young teacher in ESOL /EFL context as it provides me an insights towards existing professional and research practices.

During my study I was satisfied since the lecturers did their best to contextualize both materials and curriculum contents to meet my existing working atmosphere. After my study, I found that both theoretical knowledge in the field of SLT as well as the experience of doing research report helps me to set a direction to my teaching and research practice, because this experience has brought me to wide range of options and approaches, especially in pedagogy.

Today I am an English language lecturer at the Payakumbuh State Polytechnic of Agriculture in West Sumatra, Indonesia
