Teaching Younger Learners
Teaching English to young learners requires both creativity and hard work. Teachers who are not yet experienced in communicative approach often face problems they can't solve. Children are often hyperactive, sometimes find it hard to concentrate on theory, or simply don't feel like studying at all. This course will answer many of your questions concerning teaching young learners, inspire you to work with them and help you figure out different approaches and methods in practice.
In order for you to comfortably understand the contents of the course, your language level should not be lower than Intermediate.
