So there you are, you’ve completed your English language certificate for teaching adults and you have managed to score a teaching job. You’ll be teaching young learners! Uh oh! Have you just come out of the classroom where they’ve eaten you alive? Teaching English to children isn’t just throwing a few games and colouring in activities on top of your teacher training for adults.
We know that feeling and we’re here to help!
A good Young Learners’ teacher needs to know how to provide YLs with an opportunity to learn and develop beyond lots of games and fun.
In this course we look at the specific characteristics and differences between YLs and the adult learners you are more familiar with, as well as techniques and ideas to apply in the classroom that deal with different skills and learning situations. We’ll get you back in there with tools and confidence!
