Recent development in the field of language learning and teaching has proved that the cognitive development of young learners (YLs) is strikingly different compared to that of adults and thus makes learning and teaching quite different in YLs. On the other hand, most of the teacher training courses including CELTA, TEFL, and TESOL focus hugely on training adults. It seems vital to address the unmet needs of the pre- and in-service teachers who are working with the YLs.

Young Learners Teacher Training Course aims to tap the initial needs, understanding, and techniques which can match the developmental capabilities of the young language learners.

Course Topics:

  • Characteristics of young learners
  • Essential skills for the YL teacher
  • Classroom management
  • Classroom dynamics 
  • Planning for YL classes
  • Creating optimal conditions for learning in mixed ability classes
  • Presenting and practicing language
  • Teaching activities & resources
  • Using a course book
  • Storytelling, games & activities
  • Projects based learning
  • Phonics and sounds 
  • YL’s Writing and reading skills development
