The MA(TESOL) programme offered me a valuable opportunity to reflect and experiment. Armed with a strong foundation in language education, I was able to consider my past teaching experience through a critical lens and examine how pedagogical theories could better inform my practice. Beyond that, the courses also gave me the freedom to venture into new areas or teaching contexts. My sociolinguistics paper, for instance, took an interdisciplinary approach and analysed the language needs of law students in Hong Kong. Ultimately, the MA(TESOL) programme became an important stepping stone and led me to an English for Academic Purposes role at my current institution.
