Gain confidence teaching English to ages 3 to 6

Who is this course for?

The course is for English teachers who want to gain confidence working with very young learners. You may already have some experience or just about to start teaching this age range. The course is for face to face teaching and has ideas you can adapt for online classes.

What will you achieve?

Take this course to:

  • Consider the different needs, realities and challenges of teaching very young learners
  • Practice planning to meet aims
  • Look at games and activities aimed at recognition, production and early years literacy through phonics
  • Design and adapt practical teaching activities and materials to meet the needs of the learners and curriculum

Course outline

On this course you will look at the different stages in learning and development of young children. You will learn about activities to use to stimulate and support language development, for example craft, games, stories and songs and ways to make learning opportunities from play. You may be asked to prepare some materials at home to use in the sessions.

The course will include techniques for developing literacy at different ages from individual sounds and letters to blending sounds and spelling words.

The course was exactly what I was looking for and has definitely changed the way I see teaching English as a foreign language.
