Teach English to Young Learners
3 Day Extension Course
The TEFL course focuses mainly on teaching adults. Although a lot of the methodology and techniques can be applied to teaching children, additional methodology is needed for this (especially for teaching very young children). Therefore, for anyone interested in teaching children, we offer a 3 day extension course for an additional fee. Live TEFL graduates get a discount on the course fee.
Who is this course for?
The course is for people who already have a TEFL certificate (or equivalent qualification) and have some experience teaching adults. No experience of teaching children is necessary but would be useful.
If you have never taught children before, this course will give you the confidence to get started. If you already teach children, the course will give you new ideas and activities you can use in the classroom straight away.
What does the course involve?
The course consists of 15 hours of input over 3 days. The days start at 9:30 and finish at 16:00.
- 2 lesson plans for different age groups
A certificate will be awarded at the end of the course. All 15 hours must be attended and all assignments completed and passed.
What will you learn?
The course will focus on teaching young learners (age 5 – 12) and on the differences compared to teaching adults. The input sessions will look at theory and its practical application with an emphasis on practical application. The course covers a range of topics and will help you to more effectively teach young learners. Here are just a few of the things covered on the course:
