Ingrid den Hollander:

I really enjoyed this course. In just a few hours I learned how teaching young learners is different from teaching adults. I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to teach the very young learners before, but I am now excited to try it. I got a lot of ideas for games and activities that I will be able to use in the classroom. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to be creative as a teacher and/or is curious about teaching young learners.

Angie Butterfield:

This course has been a great help to me. Thank you! I now feel more confident with ways to manage the classroom and prepare resources for young learners. I now have lots of ideas for games, activities, stories, and songs to use in the classroom. I now know how to plan and develop my own lessons. I found it particularly helpful to share ideas on adapting tasks for different age groups and to hear the teacher’s tips and suggestions in relation to teaching vocabulary and managing games effectively.

Dr. Amanda Sepahzad:

The young learner course took me back to my childhood and reminded me of the beautiful and happy days I spent at school. The course showed me how to become a fun, creative and motivating teacher within the classroom.  No matter what their cultural background is, a child is a child – so it is important to enhance their learning potential, not only in an academic manner but also through games, songs and arts. These are all vital to their cognitive development.
