Fifty Ways to Teach Young Learners
Teaching English as a second or foreign language is full of challenges: How do you hold students’ interest? How do you ensure that they get enough practice to really learn? Teaching young learners—children—presents unique challenges. Teachers are often looking for age- and level-appropriate activities.
This book presents ideas and techniques appropriate for young learners, divided into sections for Vocabulary; TPR, Songs, and Chants; Flashcards; Grammar; Combination Activities; and Holidays. Several of the activities are illustrated with photographs from the instructor’s own classroom.
The Fifty Ways to Teach series gives you a variety of drills, games, techniques, methods, and ideas to help your students learn English. Many require little to no preparation or special materials. The ideas can be used with any textbook, or without a textbook at all. These short, practical guides aim to make your teaching life easier, and your students’ lives more rewarding and successful.
