Learn how teaching language skills to young children differs from teaching older learners. You will learn principles, methods, and techniques for teaching younger learners, as well as special considerations for:

  • materials
  • lesson planning
  • lesson delivery
  • assessment
  • feedback

Observe and examine age-appropriate lessons, texts, resources, and activities, and analyze the use of these techniques in future teaching.  After observing an ESL/EFL class for younger learners, you create an original lesson plan, and reflect on your development and professional growth.
